Olympia, WA (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
Libraries throughout Washington State now offer eBooks and eAudio on OneClickdigital as part of the Downloadable Audiobooks project made possible by the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), which is administered through the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Participating libraries have more than 5,000 titles in their OneClickdigital eBook, eAudio collection including popular titles from such bestselling and award-winning authors as Robyn Carr, Nora Roberts, Lawrence Block, Michael Chabon, Joanne Fluke, Karen Kingsbury, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
“Washington State is progressive and forward thinking as it continues to explore ways to support its libraries with resources that offer both a learning experience and a source of entertainment,” said Rich Freese, CEO and president of Recorded Books.
OneClickdigital provides Washingtonians free access to eAudio and eBooks at home, in the library, or anywhere with Internet access. Many titles are multi-access, so multiple users can check out a given title at the same time, eliminating holds. OneClickdigital is compatible with all popular listening devices, and mobile apps are available for the iPhone®, Android™, and Kindle™ Fire. It features an easy-to-use interface with streamlined navigation, fast downloads and automatic software updates. Live toll-free technical support is available at 1-877-77AUDIO.
