Even when the library is closed there are several services available using the Buckinghamshire County Council

Spydus, eLibrary and online reference resources


As a library member you can borrow e-books as well as paper books.

You can borrow up to three items for 7, 14 or 21 days using your library card and PIN. The service is provided by Buckinghamshire County Council using the OneDrive Service via your Spydus registration. All you need is your library card number and PIN.

It’s quick, easy and free to download and reserve for library members. There are no overdue charges as e_books automatically expire at the end of the loan period. E-books can also be returned early.

You can download bestselling e-books to your computer from where you can transfer them to your e-book reader or portable device. Please note that our e-books are not compatible with the Amazon Kindle service.
