Most eBooks or eAudiobooks checked out allow early returns. Here are the steps:

If you haven't yet downloaded your item: You can get the eBook site on our website by clicking on Explore > Format > eBooks on the top left of any page on our website, or you can bookmark their direct link:

You can also use the OverDrive app or Libby app on your phone or tablet.

In the OverDrive app click on the blue icon that looks like a head and shoulders to see your account information. If you haven't downloaded the item yet, you will see a “Return” option next to it.

In the Libby app check for the item on your Shelf under Loans. Click on Manage Loans and one option is to Return Loan to Library. After you click on that scroll down to the Return button, click that and your item is returned.

If you've already downloaded your eBook or eAudiobook: you can return it through whatever device you used to download and read it -- the OverDrive or LIbby app on mobile, or the Adobe Digital Editions program on your computer.

If you checked out a Kindle book: You will have to go to your Amazon account to return it. Here are the instructions for Kindle (scroll down to the “Return a Library Book” section):
