In the light of the current situation Oxfordshire Libraries have been making some big changes. (www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/libraries)
1) It is easier to join online.
2) The website has been redesigned to make it easier for you to find online services and to enable you to go exploring.
3) The collection of eBooks and eAudio to read or listen to online has been bulked up. (www. Oxfordshire.gov.uk/ebooks). Download bestselling eBooks and eAudio titles to your computer or portable device. A great choice of fiction and non-fiction titles for adults and children, all of which can be borrowed for free with your library card. There are no late fines and with a great choice of titles there is something for everyone. Borrow up to ten titles from both OverDrive and BorrowBox for up to three weeks.
4) The excellent reference services continue to be available online (www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/referenceonline)
5) eMagazines and eNews https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/enews Pressreader and
RBdigital magazines provide thousands of UK and international titles of leisure reading or
current affairs for you to read online or download. Time to garden, get creative or find out
what’s going on around the world through curated news content.
In case you are worried about books that you have not been able to return.
• You will not need to return ANY items – just keep hold of them until we open again.
• You will not need to renew items; it’s been done for you.
• You will not be asked to pay fines or hire charges.
You will not get any emails telling you items are overdue or about to be overdue.
FOCAL is the Friends of Adderbury library group and in order to keep our library open (in normal times!) must raise £10000 a year. Failure to do this will result in a significant reduction in opening hours. Obviously in the current environment we are unable to raise monies through events so your continuing support is required. Please visit www.adderbury focal.org.uk and support us by either:
Becoming a Friend – small annual donation
Make a one-off donation through PayPal (you choose the amount)
Join our 100 club and enter our monthly draw
Choose FOCAL as your charity for all purchases through Amazon. Just follow the links on our website (www.adderburyfocal.org.uk) It does not cost you and Amazon donate for each purchase made.
Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the Library when we are permitted.
On behalf of FOCAL please stay safe.
