Epukapuka = Ebooks
Upper Hutt and Hutt City Libraries are part of the newly-formed Lower North Island Digital Library Group, ePukapuka*, which is offering several hundred ebooks and audiobooks to readers.
Ebooks can be downloaded for free from the libraries’ websites to a computer, ipad, mobile phone or an ereading device, while audiobooks are talking books that can be downloaded to a computer, ipod or other compatible device with audio capability.
The Lower North Island Digital Library Group is a consortium of 15 public libraries known as ePukapuka, formed to give readers access to more content using combined purchasing power.
ePukapuka includes the following libraries: Hastings, Napier, Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, Kapiti, Porirua, Manawatu, Palmerston North, Masterton, Stratford, Wanganui, New Plymouth, Rangitikei, Carterton and South Wairarapa.
The Travel Light tour will also be visiting Kapiti, Porirua, Masterton and South Wairarapa Libraries within the next week.
* Pukapuka is the Māori word for ‘book’.
