We’re excited to announce the upcoming arrival of BorrowBox, a new eBook and eAudiobook service for every Hampshire Libraries user!
From 27 November, our service provider of eBooks and eAudiobooks will be change from OverDrive to Bolinda Digital. This means that the app you use for digital reading and listening will switch from Libby to BorrowBox.
BorrowBox offers a wide variety of popular stock, prompt U.K.-based customer support, and a colourful, user-friendly app. It is free for any Hampshire Libraries member to use; you’ll have an entire online library right at your fingertips.
eBook and eAudiobook users who are switching over from OverDrive will find a brand-new library in the BorrowBox app – once you sign up, you’ll be greeted by a fresh selection of material! While you can expect to see some popular titles ported from OverDrive, one of the great things about BorrowBox is the new and relevant stock that it can bring to you.
This changeover is also an excellent opportunity for new users to explore the convenience and accessibility of eBooks and eAudiobooks. Whether you’re a commuter, a student, or maybe someone who wants to read more but never has a book on hand, you can give BorrowBox a try on your mobile device.
If you already use the Libby app from OverDrive, then you should be aware that this service will no longer be available effective on the launch date. This includes any checked-out titles, and any waiting lists.
BorrowBox is easy to use and stocked with exciting titles – we’re certain there’s something for everyone. Plus, we’re committed to purchasing more titles in response to changes in demand; so there’s always more to come!
You can download BorrowBox when it goes live for our service on 27 November. Happy browsing!
