A world of digital resources at your fingertips

Swansea Libraries offer an abundance of free resources that can be accessed from the comfort of your own home. If you miss visiting Swansea Libraries, or are new to what is offered, a library membership is your key to thousands of online resources, including e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, e-comics, newspapers, homework help and much more.

As schools across Wales are currently closed, our services offer a wonderful way to entertain, inspire and educate children at home. Visit our online portal for homework help to aid home-schooling and access a range of educational resources, with reliable, age-appropriate information and plenty of activities to keep children busy – including access to online encyclopaedias and information sources such as World Book Online and Credo Reference.
