Read - Return - Repeat!

Help your fellow Gold Coasters out! Return digital items as soon as you’ve finished reading them. 

As everyone heeds important advice to stay home and practice social distancing, more and more library customers are turning to our online library to access eBooks and audiobooks. It’s fantastic!

Even though these items are digital, they are still a shared resource just like our physical books. These digital items are automatically returned when your lending period has concluded. They will then be available for the next person to borrow. 

If you finish a title before your lending period is up, or find you’ve borrowed something that you’re not that into, please “return” the item so that other readers (or listeners) can access it sooner.

Read – Return - Repeat!
