eBooks and Audiobooks
If you belong to Hamilton City Libraries then you are able to access a number of free ebooks and audiobooks. To find out more about their eCollections for kids, click here.
Once you have borrowed an eBook you are often able to configure the settings. For children who have difficulty reading you might like to try changing the appearance of the book:
- Use a sans-serif font like Arial or Gothic
- Increase the font size, letter spacing, word spacing, and/or line spacing
- Select a coloured reading background theme.
If you require assistance, the staff at Hamilton City Libraries will be able to help you adjust these settings.
