Carlow Library currently offers two seperate online platforms for eBooks – BorrowBox and Wheelers ePlatform. BorrowBox is our online service for eAudiobooks also. The easiest way to use either is through their respective Apps for IOS and Android on your Tablet or Smartphone. However, both platforms work well on laptops, desktop PCs and on all eReaders except the Amazon Kindle.
