Gateshead Libraries eBooks and eAudioBooks service is FREE! All you need is your Gateshead Libraries ticket and PIN. If you don't know your PIN, please contact your local library.

Using the BorrowBox app, you can download up to ten eBooks and six eAudioBooks for a maximum period of 21 days.
eBooks and eAudio are automatically "returned" at the end of the loan period, so you don’t need to worry about overdue charges.

eBooks are compatible with most eReaders except the original Amazon Kindle eReader. This is because Amazon does not support digital rights management (DRM) on eBooks. DRM is required by publishers who sell their books to libraries and it’s an issue currently faced by all library authorities in the UK.

The eBook service is compatible with the Kindle Fire (and Amazon Fire) tablet if you are able to download and install the BorrowBox app. Click here for more information.

To start downloading on your Android phone or tablet, search for BorrowBox on Google Play.

To start downloading on your iPhone or iPad, search for BorrowBox in the App Store.
