See where it says Download? Click on that and you can download the ebook as a Kindle Book (if you have a Kindle OR if you have the Kindle app on your phone or tablet - you can download it on pretty much any device) or an EPUB book, which is a kind of file that will work on other reading apps. If it's an audiobook, you can download the files and start listening (it takes a few minutes to download). You can also read the book in your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) if you'd rather do that.
These ebooks and audioboks work just like print books. They have a due date. When the 2 weeks are up (sometimes less, it will tell you when you borrow), they disappear from your app or computer. If you have any questions at all, let us know. We can help you. Bring in your device and we'll talk you through it.
