Now Available in the Cloud Library: Audiobook Downloads
The Library is happy to announce that we now offer a growing collection of audiobook downloads available via the Cloud Library platform. The collection includes Library favorites like Anthony Trollope, Barbara Pym, Donna Leon, Agatha Christie, Alice Munro, and Henry James; plus newer award-winning, acclaimed works from authors such as Elena Ferrante, Hilary Mantel, and George Saunders. We offer Young Adult and Children's titles, as well. All audiobooks are unabridged. Browse the audiobook and e-book shelves by clicking here.
If you already use the Library’s e-book collection and have downloaded the Cloud Library app onto your device, you are all set to go. The checkout process is the same—just click “listen” rather than “read” after you have borrowed the audiobook and a player will open up in the app. If you have not downloaded the app yet, go to our Cloud Library page and click the download button in the upper right corner. The app provides easy access to over 1,200 e-books selected by our Librarians, as well as the new collection of audiobook downloads. Like e-books, Cloud Library audiobooks circulate for two weeks.
For more information on using the Cloud Library see this page on our website.
The Library will also continue to offer audiobook downloads via the RBdigital audiobook downloads platform. Mostly children's and young adult titles, the RB-Digital collection also offers about 200 classic novels by authors such as Jane Austen, Joseph Conrad, George Eliot, Edith Wharton, and more. Instructions for using RB-Digital are available here.
Our excellent collection of unabridged books-on-CD is still available on stack 9 and in the Children's Library, with new titles displayed in the circulation area.
