 ***IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ***

1. I don’t know my PIN number. How can I find it?
Contact your library and we will look it up for you.

2. How long do e-books check out for?
2 weeks (After 2 weeks the e-book will expire, so you don’t have to worry about late charges.)

3. I finished my e-book. Can I turn it in early?
Yes. Tap on the three books on the top of the screen. You can access your checkouts there. Tap on the title you wish to return, then select “Return.” It will ask you to confirm the return. (Note, if you are reading on a computer, you will find your checkouts under “My Stuff.”)

4. Is there a limit to how many e-books I can have checked out?
Yes, you may have up to 8 e-books checked out at one time. Keep in mind that you can always return e-books as you finish them.

5. Are audiobooks available?
Yes, audiobooks are indicated in Axis360 by a headphones icon.

6. The e-book I want is not available.
You may place a hold on it, and you will be notified by email when it is available.

7. I can’t get Axis360 to work on my device. / I get an error message when I try to check out an e-book.

There are several reasons why the app may not be working.
See below for more information:

* Your library account must be free of all fines and overdues.
* Your library account must be up-to-date. If it has expired or is about to expire, the app will not work properly. Your librarian can check this for you and renew your account, if necessary.
*Axis360 is NOT compatible with the following:
         Kindle e-ink devices, such as Paperwhite
1st generation Kindle Fire
2nd generation Kindle Fire
