New Overdrive Audio Titles For February

February 16, 2009

Our Overdrive audiobook service provides patrons with the ability to download up to 3 audiobooks every 10 days to their computers. From there, the books can be transferred to an MP3 player, possibly an iPod or iPhone or burned to CDs for easy listening.

Amazingly, we offer this service for free to anyone holding a LION-member Library card. To download, go to the LION catalog and click on the Overdrive button. You’ll arrive at the Overdrive site where you can search the listings for the titles you want. Follow the easy instructions for downloading and transferring titles to your portable device. You can be enjoying your selections in just a few minutes.

We use an MP3 player to listen to books while exercising, doing chores and driving in the car or on an airplane. It’s a terrific way to help pass the time AND enjoy a great novel, non-fiction best-seller or even learn a language. You’ll find many newly released titles here in audio that are already checked out and have long hold queues in the print format at Libraries. It’s just one more way we try to provide you with what you want, when you want it. Here’s a list of the audiobooks added to the Overdrive catalog in February:
