Share a Story with BorrowBox on World Book Day

Residents are being invited to visit the city’s Jubilee Library tomorrow (Thursday 1 March) and enjoy free eBooks and eAudiobooks for World Book Day.

Brighton & Hove Libraries is celebrating the launch of its new BorrowBox service and is offering its members help and advice on how to download and use the app.

BorrowBox has replaced the old Overdrive and Libby service and offers a wider collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks with an app that is accessible, intuitive and simple to operate and enjoy.

Visitors to the library on Thursday 1 March will get help setting up BorrowBox on their mobile phone or tablets and then be able to experience the eBook reader and eAudiobook player.

People can relax in the Share a Story Lounge whilst listening to or reading a story on the app.

There will also be a competition to win a goodie bag stuffed full of bookish prizes and the chance to meet Bolly, a character who enjoys eAudiobooks while doing everyday tasks, and share #whatsbollydoingnow to enter the competition.

For those not able to attend the library, the BorrowBox app can be downloaded free from the Apple app store for iOS users and the Google Play store for Android users. Kindle Fire users can also download the app, while PC users can access BorrowBox through the website.

BorrowBox users will be able to access the amazing portable library at any time of the day and borrow up to 10 items at any one time - five eBooks and five eAudiobooks – for three weeks.

Find out more about BorrowBox and Bolinda Digital, the company that operates the service.
