Alameda County Library is pleased to announce a new database – NetLibrary’s eAudiobooks.  NetLibrary’s eAudiobooks are provided by Recorded Books, a well known and well respected supplier of audiobooks since 1979.  NetLibrary’s catalog of digital downloads offers approximately 2300 titles which can be transferred to your PC or other portable device.  About half of the collection titles are in the MP3 format, which makes them compatible with iPods! Also important to note is that there is no limit on the number of users per title, which means there is never any waiting or need to place a hold on anything.  Just as with regular books, eAudiobook titles are checked out for 21 days, and can be renewed for as many times as you want! 

Just log in to, click on the link for ebooks and eAudiobooks and navigate to NetLibrary.  Set up a free account and you are ready to go.  For an even better experience, go to NetLibrary “Help” and click on their Media Center client program.  You can download the client program for free and it offers a colorful and easy “one click” interface for transferring and managing your eAudiobooks. 

 The collection includes both fiction and nonfiction for adults, teen, and children, including bestsellers, book club favorites, timeless classics and award winning literature (for example, Newbery Award books). Be sure to try out this exciting enhancement to the Library’s audiobook collection!
