User instructions for Borrowbox

Your library’s BorrowBox website and app is now available in Welsh.

To switch to the Welsh version of the BorrowBox website, simply select ‘Welsh’ from the language option drop-down menu in the top right-hand side of the screen.

To switch to the Welsh version of the BorrowBox app, just use the ‘Language’ link found within the app ‘Settings’. (For Apple devices, you may need to ensure that you have first installed Welsh language support which is quick and simple to do. Just follow these instructions.)

Please note that if Welsh is already the default language on your device, both the BorrowBox app and website will automatically switch to Welsh.
