To mark the 50th anniversary of V. E. Day in 1995, Solihull Libraries collected people’s memories of wartime Solihull and published them in a booklet which was available from the library.
In 2004, to mark the the 65th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War, we converted the booklet into an electronic format.
For 2020, to mark the 75th anniversary of V. E. Day, we have made the booklet into an eBook, so it’s easier to read on tablets and eReaders. It’s available to borrow free of charge to members of Solihull Libraries – just log to our free eBooks service via the website or app with your library card.
For details of how to register for eBooks if you’ve not used the service before, just follow our step-by-step guide.
If you don’t have a current library card, you can join online immediately and obtain an online membership that will allow access to our eBooks and most of our eResources.
If you have any problems accessing the eBook, or registering for a library card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0121 704 6965 and we’ll do our best to help.
