The Kent District Library doesn’t just offer books in print. You can also listen to your favorite books or read them electronically through the OverDrive Digital Library. Click on the KDL eLibrary to access thousands of ebook and eAudiobook titles.
And now, more titles than ever are available for Apple device users!
OverDrive has announced that most WMA Audiobook files are now iPod compatible with the release of the OverDrive Media Console v3.2 for Windows. With this new version, Apple device users will be able to download nearly all available eAudiobook titles to their iPod, iPhone or iPod Touch.
Whereas previously Apple device users could only download eAudiobooks in MP3 format, they can now download and transfer WMA files to their Apple devices as well. This opens up thousands of free eAudiobook titles through OverDrive.
To access these titles, simply install or upgrade to OverDrive Media Console v3.2 for Windows. While the majority of titles are now available for Apple devices, look for the “Plays on” icons next to the title on OverDrive before downloading:
Due to incompatibility of DRM-protected WMA files and the Mac OS, there are no plans at this time to offer the ability to transfer WMA Audiobooks to Apple devices on Mac computers.
