NetLibrary, one of the downloadable services to which the Troy Public Library subscribes, now offers over 800 downloadable eAudiobooks in the MP3 format, which can be downloaded to iPods. Previously, all NetLibrary eAudiobooks were only available in the DRM-protected Windows Media Audio format. These titles could not be transferred to iPods.
Authors whose works are available in this new format include Cormac McCarthy, Stephen King, Charlaine Harris, Elizabeth Peters, and many more. Nonfiction items from Recorded Books' Modern Scholar series are also available.
To access NetLibrary, you will need to have a Troy Library card. You also need to come into the Library to register for a NetLibrary account.
After you register, you can access NetLibrary at home by clicking on the "Downloadable eBooks, Audiobooks, and Videos" link in the left-hand menu of the Library's website. Click here for a list of supported devices to which NetLibrary MP3 format eAudiobooks can be transferred.
