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.
