BorrowBox is a great way to make the most of your library membership. You’ll need to sign up with your library card number and create an account.
Then you can borrow ebooks and audiobooks. My local council library allows me to borrow 10 audiobooks and 10 ebooks on loan.
You can see the items you have borrowed, what you have reserved, and your loan history.
The audiobooks tab shows what’s available. You can filter by categories, genre and borrow by New, Award Winners, Bestsellers, Top Downloads and New Releases. You can also view items by Adult, Young Adult and Children. The ebooks tab has similar options.
To borrow an ebook or audiobook just click on the title to view the full details and book cover. Then click on the green borrow button. Then you’ll need to confirm your loan.
You can download items now or keep browsing. You may like to only download items when you are on broadband at home rather than use up your mobile data.
If an item is already out, you can select the yellow button to reserve it. You’ll receive a reminder email when it is available to download.
After you have checked out several items, you can view your loans and see when they expire. You can return it early or renew it, as required.
