Keep these helpful hints in mind for whatever device you use:

  • To bookmark a page as you go along, tap in the top right-hand corner of a page and a blue ribbon will confirm that you have bookmarked that page. When you open the book again, it will open to the most recent bookmark.
  • You get 21 days to borrow an eBook with the option to renew at the end of the time frame if there is no one else waiting for the book.
  • If you forget to return a book, it will be returned automatically once it reaches its expiration date.
