New additions to Libraries' digital services

27 October 2017

​Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes Libraries are delighted to introduce two fabulous new additions to their digital services. Press Reader and Beamafilm are now live online.

PressReader allows library members complimentary access to more than 6000 newspaper and magazine publications from New Zealand and around the world and all from the comfort of home.

Using their library membership ID and PIN to log in from a PC or a mobile device, library patrons will be able to choose from close to 200 New Zealand publication. Publications from over 120 countries in more than 50 languages will also appeal to new New Zealanders, visitor and students alike.

Beamafilm is an exciting streaming service for a growing range of documentaries and independent films. All you need to access this free service is an internet connection, your email address and your Central Otago-Queenstown Lakes library membership number.  Content can be viewed on desktop or device via the web, and cast to TVs via Google Chromecast, AppleTV or an HDMI cable.

"We encourage our library customers to hop online and explore these new offerings," said CODC Customer Services and Libraries Manger Louise Fleck. "If you need any help our library team are ready and eager to help you get to grips with PressReader and Beamafilm as well as other e-resources like our e-books and audio books. This is a really exciting part of our service as our e-Library never closes."
