eBooks, eAudiobooks, Magazines and Comics

These online services are free to members of Newport Libraries to access reference information and download loans direct to your computer or mobile device.

If your library card is not accepted by either service you may need to have your eBook account activated - email LION@newport.gov.uk and tell us the name of the service you are trying to access. 

Amazon eReader devices (such as Kindle) are unable to access these services at the moment.

Bolinda password change

On 10 June 2019 your Bolinda eBook and eAudiobook library will be reset to your date of birth in the format dd/mm/yyyy (including slashes). Usernames will remain the same. 

It will mean that LION, Bolinda and MyPc will all share the same password, making it easier for you to remember and change it when you need to. 

If you have trouble logging on using this password please email LION@newport.gov.uk for guidance.
