eBooks and eAudio books

If you are a Calderdale library member you can download a maximum of 5 titles at a time. There is a choice of around 2,500 free eBook titles, to compatible e-Readers, tablets and PCs.

You can choose a loan period of 1 to 14 days, using your library membership card.

Books are automatically 'returned', with no fines to pay and no trip to the library needed. You can also renew eBooks that have not been reserved by other customers. You can suggest, or request books for free too!

We aim to grow the collection. However, it has to be balanced with the continued demand from Calderdale readers for print material.

You will also find a selection of around 2,000 eAudio books. These can be downloaded in many formats, to suit most listening devices.
