Councillor Jim Clocherty, Convener of Inverclyde Council’s Education & Communities Committee said, “The BorrowBox app has 1,350 free e-books and 360 e-audiobooks to download with more being added on a regular basis.

“All you have to do to access this pocket library is download the BorrowBox app, sign in with your library card and start enjoying the brilliant range of books!  The new app is straightforward and easy to use but if you need any assistance with downloading and setting it up our library staff are happy to help.

“This is an incredibly popular service with 2,500 people using the previous Overdrive/Libby app for e-books and e-audiobooks. We hope that they will find BorrowBox even better. ”

BorrowBox includes a huge range of authors and titles with everything from Ruth Rendel’s Girl Next Door to George R R Martin’s Game of Thrones series.
