Q How do I return an ebook early?

Updated: Sep 26, 2017

In many cases ebooks can be easily returned. The method for returning an ebook depends on what kind of ereader you are using and what type of book you have checked out.

OverDrive: If you are reading on an Android device or iPad using the OverDrive App, tap and hold or right swipe to reveal the 'return' menu. For Kindle books, visit and go to "Manage Your Content and Devices." The "Actions" drop down next to a title will allow you to return. Here is a link to complete instructions for all devices from OverDrive Help.

cloudLibrary: cloudLibrary titles can be returned in one click from the “My Books” bookshelf. And all ebooks will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.
