Library card use online

This might help some folks.

The Library is free to join. You can get the Borrow Box app on your phone, tablet or computer. And you can download up to 12 of their 14,000 ebooks and 5,000 audiobooks onto your account at any one time.

It's basically the Netflix of books and audiobooks but for free.

I tried this a couple of years ago, but abandoned it when the Kindle format wasn't available. Has this changed?

SDCC website about Borrow Box only has a few titles. Does the app have more?

Same here. From what I can see it is still an issue. Works on Kindle tablets but not a paperwhite.

Might be too much to ask to give some directions on where to download the app? (Android, Iphone, etc?) I'd appreciate that (and I guess many of us too) Thanks

Go onto the google play store and search for Borrow Box. It's pretty straightforward.

Yah only works with Kindle fire.

Borrow box works with Fingal too so that's good. Any reccomendations for audio books?

You have to sign up in person right? With RB digital you could use the temporary number, but I think with Borrowbox you have to go into a library.

I've just installed borrow box on my android tablet, entered my South Dublin library details in the app and borrowed a book. No need to go to the library.
