Q. How do I return my eBooks?

How do I return my eBooks, and do I need to return eBooks checked out from the San José Public Library?


One of the benefits of using eBooks, eAudiobooks, and digital media from the San José Public Library is that they do not need to be returned like physical items do. They will automatically check themselves back in at the end of the loan period with no action needed on your part.

If you are interested in returning your eBook or other digital media item so that other borrowers may use it, first identify which platform you checked your item out from (Overdrive, Axis 360, Hoopla, etc.). Next, follow the corresponding link below to read the most up-to-date instructions from the platform's help files.

For links labeled as FAQs, please scroll to the given question for the latest return instructions.Hoopla will have a special section at the end of the links.
