Dundee is among several cities supporting a programme to promote free ebooks and audiobooks in Polish outside of the country for the first time. Dundee Libraries alongside counterparts Barcelona, Dublin, Dunedin, Edinburgh, Lviv, Norwich, Nottingham, Prague, Reykjavik are taking part in the initiative, Read PL, organised by the Krakow Festival Office in Poland.
Read PL is one of the largest initiatives in the world promoting reading making 7000 titles available. This year’s edition will reach a record number of readers in Poland, as well as abroad. Among the bestsellers are crime fiction, Camille Läckberg’s The Ice Princess.
Posters are being displayed in all Dundee Libraries explaining how to access the digital resources. To get the e-books and audiobooks, you need to download Woblink from the App Store or Google Play and go to the Read PL page. Just one code is necessary. Users can invite up to 5 friends to join the fun and get access to the collection. Read PL will take place from November 2 to 30. Locate where there is a poster near you using the online map: www.czytajPL.pl
