E-library service

We offer an eLibrary service  to all members of Derby Libraries.

What is available?

  • eBooks - digital books that you can view on your computer or mobile reading device.
  • eAudiobooks - spoken word recordings that can be played on your computer or mobile device

You can also access eBooks and eAudiobooks from our library catalogue

Before you download an eBook from our catalogue we recommend that you download and install the BorrowBox App. 

We recommended you visit the help page which offers guidance on getting started, what devices and apps are compatible and general information on eBooks and Audiobooks.

  • eMagazines - you can download latest editions of your favourite magazine. You must be aged 18 and over to access the eMagazine service. There are no limitations to the number of titles you can download and you can keep them on your device until you decide to delete them.
