You can download a range of digital books from Rochdale Libraries, these include eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eGraphicnovels. Loans automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees or fines to pay. You'll need to join the library and set up a FREE account unless you've already done so.

Changes to eBooks and eAudiobooks
From Monday 3 April 2017, all eBooks and eAudiobooks will be accessed through our new BorrowBox service.
Customers will be able to finish reading any titles they already have on loan with OverDrive and OneClickdigital but will not be able to renew them.
Our new service is still FREE and, because we are working in partnership with other Greater Manchester Libraries, it offers a larger collection of titles to choose from.
eBooks and eAudiobooks from BorrowBox
With BorrowBox you can:
- Borrow up to 5 eBooks and 4 eAudiobooks at a time for FREE, each for up to 14 days.
- Read or listen on many digital devices.
- Reserve eBooks and eAudiobooks that are currently on loan to other customers.
- Renew your loans (you can also renew a title once, even if another customer has reserved it).
- Return eBooks and eAudiobooks early if you wish, or just let them return automatically at the end of the loan period – no late return fees.
