Your Solihull Library Card gives you access to hundreds of free eBooks available from Solihull Libraries, and we’re trying to add some local history items to the collection.
In order to use our eBooks service, you need to have a valid Solihull Library card (you may join online for immediate access to eBooks and other online resources).
You also need to know the PIN associated with your account. If you join online, you should be asked to set a PIN when you join. If you don’t know your PIN, please email us.
If you have a valid library card, you just need to log into the eBooks site using your library number and PIN.
You may borrow eBooks via the Overdrive website or via the Libby app (available for Android and iOS devices). For detailed guidance on using the service, please see our library web page.
So far, we have these local titles available to borrow. Clicking on the images will take you through to the Overdrive eBooks page from where the books may be borrowed.
We are working on adding more content to our eBook selection, so please bear with us. We’re only able to add items that are Solihull Council copyright, or are out of copyright, or where we have permission from the copyright owner(s). Unfortunately, this means that we can’t add everything from our collection.
However, if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see available, please let us know and we’ll do our best to pursue it.
If you have written a book (published or unpublished) about local history relating to anywhere in the present Solihull Metropolitan Borough or the previous Solihull Rural District and would be happy for us to include this in our local eBooks collection, please let us know.
