Audiobooks and ebooks


You can read or listen to our collection of eBook and Audiobooks using your computer, eBook reader, mobile phone, iPod and MP3 player. 

Getting Started

To register for the service you must have a Glasgow Libraries membership. If you are not already a library member it's easy to join, simply visit one of our 33 libraries to register as a member.

You can also complete the Online membership form however your account will need to be verified at a library before you can access Overdrive eBooks and audio books.

Borrowing

You can borrow up to five eBooks and Audiobooks at a time. When you check out eBooks and Audiobooks you will have the option to select a 7, 14 or 21 day loan period, eBooks can be returned early but will automatically be made inaccessible once they expire. This means that you do not have to remember to return your eBooks at the end of your loan period if you do not wish to return them early.

No Fines

Your borrowed items will delete automatically from your eReader device on the return due date if you don't 'return' it by then. So NO fines will ever be due again when using eBooks or Audio books!
