Through NCLIVE we now have access to downloadable audio books through My iLibrary. Patrons now have free, online access to a collection of approximately 1300 audio books, which are compatible with most iPods and MP3 devices. The entire collection focuses primarily on language learning audio books, classic literature, history, and biography. Patrons can download and instantly listen to titles.

Each title can be checked out for 7 days and only by one person at a time. This means if someone else has it checked out, a hold could be placed on the item.
Once in the resource, look to the lower left hand side of the page and click on “New to Digital Audio,” this will access the help section of this resource.

If you need farther assistance please contact the reference desk.
