BorrowBox ePress - now you can access everything in one place

May 16 2023

One app for eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines. BorrowBox. Green background, white box being lifted by multicoloured balloons.

Earlier this year BorrowBox,  the app that provides our eBooks and eAudiobooks, extended their offer to include magazines and newspapers  in a new category called ePress.  

We tested this new offer, providing access to ePress through the BorrowBox app for three months without any promotion. The high number of loans and positive feedback from customers demonstrated to us that adding ePress to our BorrowBox offer would be popular with our digital library customers.  

Providing eBooks, eAudio and now ePress on a single app means that you can access everything in one place. BorrowBox have secured a wide range of titles including Radio Times, BBC Good Food, New Scientist and Hello! for the launch of the new ePress service.  

We will continue to offer Press Reader as part of our digital library, because of the wide range of international editions available, but from September 2023 Libby will no longer be provided by Hampshire Libraries. We hope that our Libby users will find the switch to BorrowBox simple. Most of the titles on Libby are also available on BorrowBox too.
