Download e-books and digital audiobooks
To download titles from the digital library, all you need is your library card number and PIN. You can then browse the e-book and digital audiobook collections and follow the instructions to issue and download titles to your PC, Mac or other mobile device.
Once downloaded, titles can be transferred to a variety of devices, including the Apple iPod, Sony Reader and Kobo. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen to on-the-go. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.
OverDrive digital library
OverDrive provides e-book and digital audiobook downloads.
To use e-books and digital audiobooks that you have downloaded, you will need to install some free software. To read e-books, you'll need Adobe Digital Editions and for audiobooks you will need OverDrive Media Console.
Unfortunately, Amazon does not allow libraries to buy or loan e-books via the Kindle.
OneClickDigital provides digital audiobook downloads.
You can choose up to ten audiobooks at a time to download. After three weeks, the audiobooks are automatically "returned" and will no longer be accessible.
