Have we got news for you – Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh now offers iPod compatible downloadable audio books! And there was much rejoicing!
To see what’s available, start at our downloadable audio books page, and choose either OverDrive or NetLibrary.
Some of OverDrive’s new MP3 titles are listed at the top of their page – there’s also a handy link that you can click to see a complete list. Right now, we have 123 MP3 titles for your listening pleasure!
The NetLibrary titles are a little trickier to find. Once you’ve logged in to the site, click on the Advanced Search link that’s just below the drop-down menu for the basic search. When you reach the advanced search page, scroll down to the Format section, check eAudiobooks and select MP3 from the drop-down menu. It’s worth the effort though, as you’ll find a list of 753 different MP3 titles that are available to anyone at any time!
As you can see, the NetLibrary covers are not as exciting as the OverDrive covers. But we still love them anyway.
All of our downloadable audio books are completely free to anyone who has a valid Allegheny county library card. If you have any questions or problems, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. We promise.
