Audio & E-Books

Audio and e-books are a fantastic way to enjoy books on your mobile devices. If you are having issues with Overdrive - the software Le Mars Public Library uses for e-books - see the OverDrive Help Page

The staff of Le Mars Public Library compiled a list of Non-Fiction e-books they recommend, as well as providing information about why the selection of e-books seems so small and e-book download instructions.

Audio Books
The Le Mars Public Library offers Playaway Devices for checkout in the Junior Section. Playaway Devices allow you to check out audiobooks - one book per device - with nothing to download.

You can also visit the WILBOR Audio Book Consortium for downloadable audio and e-books.
