BorrowBox will provide access to eBooks and eAudiobooks as well as magazines and newspapers through the ePress tab on the app.

You can borrow up to 99 newspapers or magazines at a time.  Loans are automatically returned after 3 weeks but the titles are available to borrow again straight away should you need.  Or you can renew the items before the return date.
