eBooks and eAudio books

If you are a Calderdale library member you can download a maximum of 5 titles at a time, with a choice of over 400 free eBook titles, to compatible e-Readers, tablets and PCs.

You can choose your loan period of between 1 and 14 days, using your Calderdale library membership card.

The 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 over the next 12 months, balanced with the continued demand from Calderdale readers for print material.

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

Have a look at our digital bookshelf to see what's on offer!
