The impact of digital technology means a fresh approach to #LibraryServices in the 21st century

The way libraries are used is changing – not just in Lincolnshire, but across the country. Smart phones, tablets, e-readers and other new technologies offer new ways of doing things, and the library service is adapting accordingly.

Cllr Nick Worth, executive member for libraries, culture and heritage, said: “Over the past few years, local libraries have introduced a growing range of digital services. E-books and e-audio books are flying off the virtual shelves, with around 3,000 copies issued each month.

“Users can also access a wide range of reference books online, such as the Oxford English Dictionary, Encyclopaedia Britannica and Who’s Who – all free. You can even take an online simulation of the UK’s driving theory test at your local library.

“All this means customers can enjoy many library services around the clock and from the comfort of their own homes.”
