eBook & Audiobook Loan Periods

The Next Generation version of downloadLibrary really does make downloading ebooks and audiobooks easier. There are fewer steps and the interface is much easier to read. To make the download process easier, downloadLibrary now automatically checks books out for the default lending period which is defined in your account settings.

  1. To adjust your default loan period, log into your account on www.downloadlibrary.ca.  
  2. Click on Account in the green bar across the top
  3. On the right you will see four options:
    • Bookshelf (where you can see what you have checked out)
    • Holds (to see a listing of titles you are waiting for)
    • Lists (to access your Wish List, Rated List, and lists of titles Recommended For You and By You)
    • Settings (where you adjust your default lending times)
  4. Click on Settings
  5. Click on the loan period you would automatically like for each format - eBook, Audiobook and Video.  
  6. When you have finished with your choices, click the Done button. 
Now when you borrow an ebook or audiobook, you will get them for the length of time you really wan them for!

As a reminder, you can always return your items early!  Ebooks and MP3 Audiobooks
