Book lovers in Derbyshire can now view some of the latest titles available as eBooks after the area became involved in a new pilot scheme.

Derbyshire County Council’s library service made a successful application the Publishers Association and Society of Chief Librarians to become one of only four areas in the country to be part of the trial.

Borrowers in these four areas will have access to more than 1,000 titles which are not currently available in the year long pilot scheme. The aim is to carry out research into the impact of eBook lending in public libraries on authors, publishers and on the library service so a suitable model can be rolled out nationwide.
