I was just coming in here to post the same, it is such a fantastic service! I don't think I'd have read half as many books this year without it. If I have nothing to read I just need to browse on my phone and pick something I like the look of.

What do you need to do to loan books from a public library in Ireland?

To get a library card you need to bring photo ID and a proof of address to the library and they'll give you a card and activate it for you. Make sure you also get them to set up a PIN for you if you want to use the BorrowBox app as you'll need that to log in with.

You can also order physical books online to be reserved or sent from another library to your local one for you (also need your PIN for this) - I have done this many times, it's a great service and usually only takes a few days.

And while you're at it, ask them if they have an "Open Library" facility and if they can set your card to allow you access.

Will I be able to download books from borrowbox to my phone and then send to a kobo Clara reader? You download an asmx file open with Adobe digital editions on phone? If then copy the epub onto kobo, will I be able to read or does it have to be read on phone where it was downloaded?
