This will help you find the items you have on loan in ‘Checked Out’, access the audio book, comic and magazine collections to loan items, check your holds list and add/change profiles logged in.

    Clicking the cover image will display more information about the title including the options to renew or return the title and view more editions of that title (if a magazine).

Renewing & Returning Magazines, Comics & Audio Books

Audio books & Comics:

Audio books and comics will return themselves as your loan period ends. If you wish to return a title early the easiest way is to open the ’Checked out’ screen in the app and CLICK the X on the corner of the title you wish to return.

To renew audio books, CLICK on the cover image of the title on the ‘Checked out’ screen, then CLICK the RENEW button.

Magazines:

Our magazines have no limits on the length of time you have the item. 

If you do wish to clean up your downloads, it is as simple as opening the ’Checked out’ screen in the app and CLICKING the X on the corner of the title you wish to return.
