If you have trouble visiting our libraries in person, never fear, we have hundreds of titles to browse in our digital library. BorrowBox is an app that can be downloaded to any smartphone or tablet device, it contains eBooks and audiobooks for you to access for free.
eBooks are digital books that can be read on a screen. Font can be made larger or smaller by clicking the aA font button in the bottom left of your screen. Screen colour/background can also be changed. Audiobooks are recorded stories that can be played and listened to, this is particularly helpful for long car rides, or for those who are visually impaired.
