Another nice feature of our Library's participation in ACLA and the eiNetwork is the availbility of e-Books, Downloadable Books. Have you ever listened to a book on tape or CD? Same idea, but you don't have to come to the library to borrow the item!
Downloadable audio books are free. And they are a great way to checkout (for 3 weeks! And can be renewed.) and listen to audio books (borrow up to 10 at a time) when it suites you, without late fees.
First, an player is necessary. Get one with good capacity, at least 256 MB, but more is better. Make sure it has an On/Off feature, full time display, forward and reverse and a locking option. Also, get a comfortable pair of earphones or buds.
OverDrive is our source for Audio Books and Downloadable videos.
