Hi there, I recently signed up and got my library card..
When I try to access borrow box it tells me that my account does not have permission to use the service, is there anything that I can do to enable this?

Hi Mark, sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing Borrowbox. Please email librariesweb@dublincity.ie with your library card number (D1000000....) and I will look into it.
Kind regards, Gillian
