Borrowbox

Our digital collection gives you 24 hour access to thousands of e-books and hundreds of e-audiobooks. It's available to all Gateshead library members. 

With Borrowbox you can:

  • borrow up to 10 eBooks and 6 eAudiobooks free of charge for 3 weeks
  • avoid fines as books are returned automatically at the end of your loan period
  • return books before the end of the 3 weeks - we would encourage you to do this as there is currently a big demand for titles
  • renew your eBook or eAudiobook twice - you will be prompted to do this
  • reserve the title and you will receive it on the date that the book is due to be returned - you may even receive the book earlier if it is returned before the due date
