Borrow More BorrowBox!
The new version of the BorrowBox App for borrowing eBooks and eAudiobooks has some great new enhancements.
As well as an improved layout and navigation, you can now return your BorrowBox loans before they expire, meaning you can start your next book sooner.
Other improvements include the ability to cancel unwanted reserves, a playback speed function so you can listen at your own pace, and a sleep timer for eAudiobooks.
Update through your device, or get started with BorrowBox at our Downloads page.

One Card, Many Libraries
As a member of Yara Libraries you are able to request items from any of the more than 100 Swift Consortium Libraries across Victoria. From July 1 2015 you will also be able to borrow directly from any of those libraries with your existing library card.
Your Yarra Libraries card will automatically become a “Swift One Card” and may be used to borrow items, request holds for pickup and pay outstanding bills at any public library branch that is part of the Swift Library Consortium network in Victoria. More
All branches of Yarra Libraries will be closed for the Queen's Birthday Public Holiday on Monday 8 June.
