The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library’s Audio Visual (AV) department is on the cutting-edge of technology with many exciting new offers, including its latest – iPod-compatible downloadable media. The AV department is located at Main Library, 325 Michigan St., in downtown Toledo.
Popular and classic audiobooks in the MP3 format are now available for download 24/7 from the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. The new DRM-free format, the MP3 Audiobook, is compatible with Apple iPod players, as well as hundreds of other MP3 players including those from Creative, Sony, Samsung, Rio, SanDisk, and most cell phones. Library users will be able to access the digital library anytime, anywhere by logging on to toledolibrary.org.
“The Library is thrilled that we can now provide downloadable audiobooks which will be accessible to iPod users. We know that this device is very popular with our patrons, and now they can enjoy our audiobook collection as well,” said Tracy Montri, manager of the Library’s AV department.
The initial MP3 Audiobook collection features a growing collection of popular novels, children’s books, classic works, and an array of nonfiction subjects. The new section of MP3 Audiobooks complements the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library’s diverse downloadable media collection, which offers hundreds of audiobooks (WMA format), eBooks in popular formats, as well as music and downloadable video.
How To Download the MP3 Audiobooks?
To download the MP3 Audiobooks, users must install the OverDrive Media Console version 3.0. The free software provides users with a superior audiobook listening and navigation experience with newly added support for easy transfer of the MP3 Audiobooks to the iPod, iPhone, and iPod touch. Apple iTunes installation is required for transfer to an Apple device. This also includes a burn wizard, for the option of listening to audiobooks on CD, where permissions allow.
