How do you check out an eBook? In most cases a public library has a website which allows you to select, reserve and download the eBook. How you transfer the file to your device depends on the device type, but most libraries have staff trained on how to assist with the most popular devices and online instructions on how to transfer and view the books.

How do you return a book? In most cases the files will just expire and you can delete the file from your device when your time is up. If there is a physical media, you need to pick up at the library you may need to return it, but in most cases the process is as simple as deleting the book.
