Special notice about eAudiobooks and eBooks
Help out your fellow library members! Return digital items as soon as you’ve finished reading them.
At the present time, more and more library users are turning to our eLibrary to access eBooks and audiobooks. That's fantastic.
Even though these items are digital, they are still a shared resource just like our physical books. These digital items are automatically returned when your lending period has concluded. They will then be available for the next person to borrow.
If you finish a title before your lending period is up, or find you’ve borrowed something that you’re not that into, please use the “return” option so that other readers (or listeners) can access it sooner.
