Too busy to read? Think again! Read with your ears! Listen to an eAudiobook doing housework, at the gym, or on your daily commute.
East Central Regional Library’s OverDrive Digital Library now offers a digital space just for eAudiobook listeners. Just as audiobooks have their own section of physical branch libraries, now they too have their own space in the digital world.
Rising in popularity, eAudiobook checkouts now comprise over 30% of checkouts on East Central Regional Library’s OverDrive Digital Library. This new Audiobook eReading Room allows dedicated listeners to access the titles they want faster than ever!
Oneclickdigital and Zinio for Libraries apps have merged into one. For the first time, you will be able to access eAudiobooks, eBooks, and eMagazines in one easy-to-use library app: RBdigital!
Other key features include a significantly improved user experience and a faster, easier search!
If you want to learn more, this webinar takes you through the process of creating an account, searching for content, and downloading eAudiobooks, eBooks, and eMagazines.
Continue celebrating Audiobook Month throughout June!
AudiobookSYNC’s Week 8 titles feature American cultural history told from insiders’ perspectives, honoring Juneteenth on June 19th.
The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez is based on Operation Pedro Pan, an early 1960s project to send unaccompanied Cuban children to the United States in order to avoid what their families feared would become Fidel Castro’s denial of parental authority.
These titles celebrate the power of audiobooks to overcome cultural stereotypes and give listeners the opportunity to stretch beyond their own assumptions.
Available for a Limited Time
Remember — grab these titles before they are replaced by a new pairing on 6/22/2017! While the download time is limited, your listening time is not. Once you have downloaded the MP3 files, the eAudiobook is yours to keep.
