Win an iPad!

October is the perfect month to discover the exciting range of free eBooks available from North Yorkshire Libraries. Not only do we have 21,000 titles for you to browse but each time you borrow an eBook in October you will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win an iPad. We can’t promise you’ll win the iPad but we can promise you will find a huge range of expertly curated and hot-off-the-press titles ready to be borrowed on your personal device.

To enter the prize giveaway simply borrow up to 5 eBooks from North Yorkshire Libraries via BorrowBox during October 2022. You are very welcome to borrow more eBooks – but only the first five will count as entries to the iPad giveaway. Please note whilst BorrowBox also offers a fabulous range of eAudioBooks these are not part of the prize giveaway and won’t act as an entry to the competition. (You are of course welcome to borrow an eAudioBook or 3 while browsing their range.)

We would like to thank BorrowBox for donating the iPad for this giveaway.
