Before you start
You can borrow eAudiobooks and listen on the go using two different apps for East Riding Libraries. With Overdrive and the Libby app, you can access eAudiobooks and eMagazines from the same account, or with BorrowBox, you can get eAudiobooks and eBooks on the same account. You can have both apps on your device, and enjoy reading, listening and relaxing whenever the mood takes you.
To set up your device to borrow eAudiobooks you will need:
- A library membership You need to be a member of East Riding Libraries and have an online account. Find out how to join on the Memberships page.
For Overdrive and the Libby app

How many eAudiobooks can I have?
You can borrow up to eight eAudiobooks at a time. On Overdrive you select a loan period of 7, 14 or 21 days. In your app settings you can set it to auto-download everything, only titles under 20 megabytes or nothing. On BorrowBox the default loan period is 21 days.
Your eAudiobook is automatically returned on the due date, or you can return the eAudiobook early or renew it.
Remember there is free public Wi-Fi at all of our branch libraries to download your eAudiobooks.
