Download Audiobooks for Free
With your library card, you can browse your library's collections 24/7, choose an audiobook, and download it for free, all without leaving your home.
You'll be borrowing it for a certain amount of time, usually two to three weeks, after which time it will no longer be available on your computer. (But, if you load the file onto a portable device, it will often stay on that one device indefinitely.)
One of the most popular vendors libraries use is Overdrive, a company which offers audiobooks, as well as e-books and some interactive multimedia. If you go to their site overdrive.com/ you can put in your ZIP code and see which libraries near you offer downloads through this company.
If your library is not on the list, you may be able to get borrowing privileges from a nearby library. Many states and regions have cooperative agreements whereby cardholders in one system can check out things with another system. Check with your local library to see if they have such an arrangement.
Once you have access to a library that offers audiobook downloads, here is what you do:
1. Go to the library's website and look for a button to click for audio downloads.
2. Look for a link that enables you to download the Overdrive Media Console. This is a handy piece of software that will show what you have borrowed and when it is due. It also has a button that easily allows you to sync with your digital audio player.
3. Browse or search the Overdrive audiobook collection in your library. Just as with physical books, your library will only be able to offer the books it has bought for its collection.
4. Some of the audiobooks you want may be checked out, because the library can only lend a copy of an audiobook to one person at one time. However, you can put your name on a list to get it by "placing a hold" on the book. You'll be placed in a queue of people, and each time the item gets checked back in, it will go out to the next person, and you'll move up higher in the queue. When it's your turn, and the item is ready for you, the library will notify you that it's ready for you to download.
5. When you find an audiobook you want, check out the item, and it will be placed in you Overdrive Media Console. From there, you can download it to your computer.
6. Once it's downloaded, you can sync it to your portable device.
7. Overdrive also offers apps which can help you download audiobooks directly to your phone or other portable device.
Whether you use audiobooks during your commute, while you're cleaning house, or when you're on a long car trip with your kids, downloading them from your library can help you save money and enjoy good books.
