As of October 2010, The National Library Service will no longer be producing books on cassette, so be sure to get your request in early for the Digital Book Machine.
With the new digital book machine you have a longer play time on battery (29 Hours). Recharge time of only 2 hours for a full charge. No more flipping tapes over or flipping switches to get to the other side of the book. The whole book fits on one digital cartridge. Better sound quality, smaller player and easy to use. Keep your cassette player too because not all books are available in digital format.
Sign up nor for the Digital Machine. Call or email us your request.

Want to know how you can turn your passion into a new career? It is possible, and many of our former students have gone on to do just that.
If you want to write for magazines and newspapers, and get paid for it, you just need the confidence and the right tools to get you started. That’s what our Online Feature Writing course can give you – and you don’t even have to attend a classroom!
This course will cover:
- which ideas work and where to get them
- understanding the magazine/news market
- different types of feature articles
- how to research, structure and write a feature
- what editors want from a writer
- how to pitch your article or idea to a magazine and sell it!
Here’s what our most recent participants had to say about the course:
‘It was very easy and convenient to do the course online. I set myself a day to download the weekly PDFs and MP3s and would then fit in the three modules over the course of the week as it best suited my time availability. Some weeks I could do the whole Module in one sitting and other weeks I had to chunk it down to manageable time allocations around my schedule. The flexibility to do this was fantastic. I loved the fact that I could have a first listen through with the notes in front of me and then have the MP3 downloads with me in the car for a second listen which helped immensely.’
– Shaleen Hill
‘I’ve learnt loads! Yes, I have absolutely benefited from the course.’
– Melanie Tong
