E-books and Audiobooks

To supplement our large hardcopy collection, CTHS Library also has subscriptions to e-books and audiobooks through Wheelers. You can access these books through the “ePlatform” Wheelers link or the Oliver catalogue, both on the left of the page. Alternatively, you can download the Wheelers app – see the Wheelers website for instructions.

Keep reading during COVID-19 restrictions. In addition to CTHS Library’s e-books and audiobooks you can access online reading material from:

  • Your local library.
