Read or listen to selected eBooks and eAudiobooks and share your views
Join our online book club; Face in a Book Club, where customers can enjoy reading or listening to selected eBooks and eAudiobooks and share their views in a Facebook group.
Book Clubs have a variety of benefits, including encouraging people to read, getting reading recommendations, chatting with like-minded people, reducing social isolation AND of course eBooks/eAudiobooks are free to borrow from the East Riding Libraries! Reading is also found to decrease blood pressure, lower heart rate, and reduce stress to significant degrees. According to a 2009 study at the University of Sussex, stress is reduced up to 68% just by reading, which could be a really helpful mental health tool for many people.
The selected book/books can be downloaded up to 500 times simultaneously through the free Borrowbox app, using your East Riding Libraries membership, meaning hundreds of people can read the same book concurrently.
