You may borrow 10 ebooks and 10 eAudio books at once for a period of 21 days.

You can listen /read your loans offline as long as you have first downloaded the eBook or eAudiobook to your device. Therefore, you don’t need to be connected to the internet to access it but it is a good idea to turn your wi-fi off so that your device does not keep looking for a connection.

If someone else has a title you wish, you can reserve it and get your copy when it gets returned. Several days before your loan ends you will be sent a reminder via email to renew your loan title if you need more time. If you finish it early you just return it and get another one.

If there’s a book that’s not available you can simply ask us to order it It’s easy to find the books you want because you can browse only the categories that interest you or enter the author or title into the search function.

The BorrowBox app also now synchronises your reading/listening progress for each eBook/eAudiobook via the cloud – automatically without a touch. Simply put down one device, pick up another, and continue where you left off.
