Linwood Library and Service Centre at Eastgate opening

Kids reading on a couch at Linwood Library at Eastgate.

Life can be a bit of a slog when you are a teen. Here at Christchurch City Libraries we want to make your life easier. To kick this off let me highlight some entertainment options before heading to the more icky work-related stuff  for homework and research.

Fun stuff

Freegal: Download for free three songs a week to keep from the Sony Music catalogue. It has every kind of music from Top 40 to  Tiny Tim and His Tornadoes(?).

OverDrive: Our downloadable e-book and audiobook collection has a large range of content for teens.

TumblebookCloud: an online collection of e-books, read-along chapter books, graphic novels, videos, and audio books.

Study stuff

Student Resources in Context: valid information accompanied by pictures, audio and video files through a single entry search point – a real time saver.

World Book Online Info Finder: an interactive online encyclopedia covering every known subject.

Opposing Viewpoints in Context: provides balanced information from both sides of social, political and technological debates.

This is but a trickle in the ocean of online information we provide at the Source. Have a look and be converted to a new way to relax and also get those deadlines out of the way.
