At Marine Society we have experience in providing crew libraries for over 100 years and we’re convinced of the contribution books can make to the welfare of seafarers. The Digital Library app is the 21st century solution and has already been adopted by a number of major shipping companies.
Our Digital Library app is a unique way to provide your crew with thousands of books wherever they are in the world.
The easy-to-use app offers thousands of downloadable books and magazines in multiple languages (English, Russian, Hindi, Spanish, Tagalog, and more) to be borrowed for free through smartphone or tablet.
In our ever-expanding library, we have books and magazines to meet everyone’s taste, with titles from every genre of fiction and non-fiction. We also offer key publications that support professional development amongst crews, including maritime and language studies.
Digital library users have their own online community, where they can submit, review and comment on book reviews. They can also request or suggest book titles in the same online forum.
In our continually growing library we have books and magazines to meet everyone’s taste – every genre of fiction and non-fiction. Also, books that support continued professional development including maritime and language studies. Access to a recreational library is recommended by the Maritime Labour Convention. Recent research has proven that reading can encourage relaxation more than other activities and its benefits for helping combat loneliness and isolation are well documented.
