Total Boox Update

Posted on April 10, 2019 at 3:28 PM by Andy Schafer

If you're wondering what happened to Total Boox, you're not alone. The state library began experiencing technical problems with Total Boox late last year, at which time we contacted the company to have them resolve the issues. They responded to our message but at this time have provided no resolution.

In January of this year, we noticed that the Total Boox app was removed from Apple's App Store. In March we heard from Android users saying that the app was no longer responding. For these reasons, we have chosen to remove all links and references to Total Boox from our website. If the service becomes reliable again, we will reinstate these links, however, at this point in time, no amount of customer support on the library's part can bypass these issues.

We're sorry for any inconvenience suffered by our patrons who used Total Boox. If there were any specific titles from the Total Boox collection that you would like the library to purchase so that you may continue using them, please complete our Digital Library Book Request form.  While the library only actively purchases eBooks for the cloudLibrary platform, if you're looking for another eBook platform that has a larger collection, we'd recommend trying either Enki Library or Freading.
