Magazines are coming to BorrowBox!

We're in the process of moving our magazine collection to BorrowBox. This means you'll soon be able to access ebooks, audiobooks and magazines all in the one place!

We will be moving all of our e-books and audiobooks from Libby to BorrowBox, along with our most popular magazines. Libby will be unavailable from 30 June onwards.

This is to ensure we're providing the most content on the one platform - making it easier for you to read! 

We have a huge collection of eBook titles which cover a range of genres for adults, young adults and children. You may read or listen to titles on your computer, eReader, tablet or smart phone. 

To use this online service all you need to do is be a library member, have a six digit PIN and have access to the internet.
