Borrowing an e-book set to become easier for customers

27 March 2017

Borrowing e-books from Essex libraries will be easier from next week as they will all be stored in one location.

From 1 April Borrowbox will be our sole e-book supplier and customers will no longer have access to Overdrive.

Titles currently on Overdrive will be transferred to Borrowbox, with borrowing limits increased so customers can still borrow the same number of titles as before.

Those with titles already on loan from Overdrive will be able to keep them until their renewal date.

The changes will make it easier for our customers to find what they’re looking for as they will need just the one app and will find everything in one location.

And money saved on operating two separate contracts will be diverted to Borrowbox, with new titles added every month.

Instructions for using Borrowbox and downloading the app can be found on our libraries website.
