Hublet help on offer at Warwickshire libraries

Leamington Editorial 5th Nov, 2023   0

HUBLET help is being offered at Warwickshire libraries.

Hublets are free digital tablet devices available in most Warwickshire libraries for e-reading.

They are now available to use at Leamington, Nuneaton, Rugby, Warwick, Kenilworth, Southam and Stratford libraries, and allow users to enjoy eMagazines, eNewspapers, eBooks, and other online eResources without the need to have or bring their own digital devices to the library.

The Hublets are housed in docking stations at each library, and users can borrow them for a defined period by inserting their library card into the barcode reader.




It will then be on loan to people within the library for a defined period. The devices are free to use and work within each library building by utilising the library wi-fi.

The Hublets are designed to be user-friendly and accessible to all, and library staff are on hand to provide any necessary support.


The drop-in sessions to learn how to use the Hublet devices are taking place between 10.30am and 12.30pm at 8 November at Rugby Library (November 8), Warwick (November 13), Stratford (November 30), Kenilworth (December 13), Leamington (January 9) and Southam (January 26).

Warwichshire Libraries spokesman Coun Yousef Dahmash said: “It’s great news that we are able to offer Hublets across more of our library settings and support the expansion of a digital offer to our library customers.

“Hublet digital tablets are an easy and convenient way to gain free access to a whole wealth of e-reading resources, and remove the need for personal ownership of a digital device. This is ideal for anyone who would enjoy reading online content, but either does not have a device of their own or would prefer to read on a screen in our vibrant and welcoming library settings.”
