A new service which will allow customers to borrow free e-audiobooks online 24 hours a day has been launched by Stoke-on-Trent’s libraries.

Library users can access BorrowBox seven days a week from their mobile phones, tablets and laptops and the service provides access to a wide range of stories from bestselling authors including Lee Child, James Patterson, Roald Dahl and David Walliams.

Councillor Lorraine Beardmore, cabinet member for culture, sport and leisure, said: “Borrowbox is a fantastic, modern addition to the huge range of services that are available from our libraries. The system is really easy to use and gives customers the flexibility to borrow e-audiobooks when they want to.”

To use Borrowbox, customers will need a library card – available for free from any library in the city. The service can then be accessed online and with Apple iOS and Google Android devices. Customers download e-audiobooks directly from https://library.bolindadigital.com/stokeontrent or from the free BorrowBox app – available to install from the App Store and Google Play.

It complements the libraries’ existing services which give customers free access to e-books, e-audiobooks and popular e-magazines. To find out more about any of these services, visit stoke.gov.uk/libraries, or visit your local library.
