Use Ellibs' e-books on a mobile app

The Helmet Libraries’ Ellibs collection of e-books in Finnish is available through the Ellibs mobile app. You can browse the collection, borrow, reserve and use e-books and audiobooks. You do not have to create a separate user account to use the app – just log in with your library card number and PIN code.

The app works in both iOS and Android devices

The Ellibs app is available free of charge for iOS and Android smart phones and tablets. When you open the app, choose Helmet Library and enter your library card number and your personal PIN code.

You can use the app to:

  • Read your borrowed e-books offline.

Everything you borrow through the app is also accessible to you when you sign in to Ellibs e-library in your browser. Similarly, the books you have previously borrowed via browser are at your disposal in the app.

The technical requirements of the Ellibs app and a detailed list of features can be found in the app store.
