eBooks

You can read eBooks on your eReader, desktop, laptop or mobile device using Overdrive for free with your Buckinghamshire library card and PIN

A full library member may:

  • borrow up to 5 items at a time
  • borrow eBooks for up to 21 days. Please note the first time you use OverDrive the loan period defaults to 7 days, you may change this in your settings - see how to change the loan period to 7, 14 or 21 days
  • read an eBook in your browser or download to your device via the app.
  • transfer a title to an eReader using Adobe Digital Editions.

Please note that our eBooks are not compatible with the Kindle eReader devices, e.g. the Kindle Paperwhite.

Your loans automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees
