Audiobook

Listening to audiobooks doesn’t require the installation of any application on your device. The books are streamed directly to your Web browser from a link made available in the detail page of any borrowed books on your e-lending platform. Once the loan has been processed, your audiobook will open automatically in a new page, in your Web browser of choice.

Borrowing an Audiobook

  1. Using a Web browser on your device, find the book you want to borrow from your library’s collection. You can make it easier by applying a filter that will display only audiobooks.
