Returning Ebooks

To return an Ebook to the library, you can simply let it expire at the end of the lending period, or follow the instructions for your device to return early. Please note that due to publisher restrictions, not all Ebooks can be returned early.

We also have a list of helpful Frequently Asked Questions about eBooks.
