Book Express

Newport Libraries Book Express service enables you to select up to 50 books a year from Newport Libraries stock.

The selected items are posted to your home address with a return postage-paid envelope so that you can return the items when you have finished reading.

Book Express users may also download free eBooks, eMagazines and eAudiobooks from the Newport Libraries online catalogue.

Book Express is ideal for busy working people or for students who cannot get to their local library during business hours.

If you are already a member of Newport Libraries please email for more information.

If you are not a library member you can register for Book Express online.
