Waukegan Public Library in Partnership with Recorded Books Offers eAudiobook Service OneClickdigital
Waukegan Public Library, in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), is pleased to offer OneClickdigital, an online service that allows patrons to download a wide range of audiobooks, including best-sellers, recorded books, exclusives, classics, selections for children and young adults, and much more.
Patrons have free access to eAudio at home, in the library, or on the go. 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. OneClickdigital features an easy-to-use interface with streamlined navigation, fast downloads, and automatic software updates. Free technical support for patrons is available at 1-877-77AUDIO.
“I love using the OneClickdigital app on my smartphone to download audiobooks,” says Sara Teti, Reference Assistant at Waukegan Public Library. “I especially like that you never have to wait for an audiobook—they’re always available, no matter how many other users have downloaded it and the selection is fabulous.”
Details on how to access OneClickdigital may be found here or ask a librarian.
