At Lake Mac Libraries, we're always looking to provide our borrowers with easy access to a wide range of resources.

As part of this, we’ve launched a new YouTube channel with a range of videos designed to entertain and educate both children and adults alike.

These videos include a variety of content such as storytime readings, family activities, author interviews and online technology tutorials. We continue to regularly develop new content – so be sure to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss out!

In addition to our new video series, we also have a huge range of E-Resources available on our website and via the Lake Mac Libraries app.

You can access our entire collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, comics and music – all for free with your library card.

Our range of digital resources and activities can be found below. We’ll update this page regularly as new resources are added.
