Borrow More BorrowBox!

Borrowbox App for eBooks and eAusiobooksThe 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.
