Outlining borrowing arrangements, Libraries NI added: “From December 4, to stock up on Christmas holiday reading, customers can borrow up to 18 books and this increased borrowing will remain in place until January 2. Return dates for books borrowed from December 4 will be extended to account for library holiday closures.

"Throughout the holiday period, customers can continue to have immediate and free access to thousands of eBook and eAudiobook, eNewspaper and eMagazine titles through our online library. Up to 36 eBooks can be borrowed at a time (18 from Libby/Overdrive and 18 from BorrowBox).”
