Free Audiobook Downloads

Tired of waiting for library materials with a long list of holds? The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown is now available as a downloadable audio book on the Carnegie-Stout Overdrive site. You can listen to it on your computer, mp3 player or iPod. If a title is currently checked out, you can place a hold and be notified via email when it is available. Items in the collection can be checked out for seven days. Other new and upcoming titles include: Dreamfever by Karen Moning, U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton, That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo and Nutureshock by Po Bronson. The most popular titles overall for Dubuque listeners remain the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer.

Our growing collection now includes eBooks in either the new Adobe EPUB or standard Adobe PDF format as well as downloadable music, and video. Look for the Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf, a local Dubuque author. The eBook collection can be read on your PC, Mac or Sony Reader.

To check out materials from this collection, you just need a full service library card and Internet connection . Go to the E-Branch Library tab on our website at and click on the Download Audio Books and Music link to access the Overdrive collection. Use your library barcode number and PIN to log in and follow the instructions for getting started if you are a first time user. Some titles like the Soloist by Steve Lopez can be burned to CD; the icons by each title indicate format and options for viewing or listening. Check it out @your library!
