There are 6 library branches across Boroondara, but did you know that your library membership is your ticket to thousands of online books?

You can reserve and download thousands of eBooks and audiobooks using the apps Libby (by OverDrive) and BorrowBox (by Bolinda). Just search for and download the apps, enter your library membership number and PIN, and get started.

eBooks and audio books

Using Libby, you can borrow more than 20,000 eBooks, audiobooks, magazines and more, to read books on your phone or iPad. You can use the OverDrive app to access the titles on your desktop.

For listening on the go, try downloading Borrowbox. Boroondara library members get access to the world-leading audiobook app, which has eBooks and audiobooks for adults, teens, and children.

Borrowing eBooks via Libby or Borrowbox means you can access our collections from any device, any time.

You can also sync across multiple devices so you can keep reading at any given moment.

Children’s books

Reading with children helps to establish an early love of literacy and reading. Kids can watch and listen to quality storytelling from some of Australia’s best actors, authors and performers as they read Australian picture books on StoryBox library. Alternatively, you can listen to audiobooks or watch animated picture books on Kanopy Kids.
