To use uLIBRARY, you just need your library card number and 4 digit PIN (usually your year of birth) to access a growing range of eAudio titles exclusive to Blackburn with Darwen library members. You can select up to 6 titles with a loan period of 21 days.

With both platforms, once the loan period has expired the items return themselves and will be no longer available on your device. Items can be renewed once or downloaded again if another customer has not reserved them.
