How long can I checkout an eBook? Are there late fees?

Why do I have more than 12 checkouts for this week?
Unused checkouts roll over each week until the end of the month. At the end of the month, unused checkouts are removed from your account, except for your original weekly allotment.
Can I renew my eBooks?

How many eBook titles are available to download?
It changes daily as new titles are always being added. There are many books in different genres.
Can I download these eBooks to my tablet or smartphone? What software or apps do I need?
Yes, for answers to these questions please visit Freading’s FAQ webpage for updated information.
I only downloaded two eBooks, but can’t download anymore. Why not?
A library-wide weekly download limit has also been set. If this limit is reached, you may add the eBooks to your “wish list” to download the following week.
What is my “wish list”?
Your “wish list” is a saved list of eBooks that you may want to download in the future.
