Can I return an e-book early?

Some e-books can be returned early.

In Adobe Digital Editions, you’ll have the option to “Return Borrowed Item” when you right-click on the title while in Shelf View.

Boundless (formerly Axis360) also provides ways to return titles early.

In the Libby, by OverDrive app, you may have the option to return an e-book early by tapping “Manage Loan”, then “Return Early.”

For your Kindle, you can return a public library book from the Manage Your Kindle page in Amazon.

  1. From your Amazon account, go to ‘Manage Your Kindle.’
  2. Move your mouse over the ‘Actions…’ button next to the public library book you want to return.
  3. Select ‘Return this book.’
  4. When prompted “Are you sure you want to return this Library Loan Ebook?” select ‘Yes.’ The title is returned.

Please note, the OverDrive Kindle Book will remain on your Kindle until you next sync your Kindle with your Amazon account. The OverDrive Kindle Book will remain in your list of titles in ‘Manage Your Kindle’ unless you select the ‘Actions…’ option to Delete the title.
