Downloading audiobooks

The Volusia County Public Library offers downloadable audiobooks from three providers.  The library does this to ensure that we can provide you with the popular fiction and non-fiction titles that you want to read from as many publishers as possible. 

Deciding which provider website to visit can be confusing.  For your convenience we are entering the audiobooks into Surfcat, our online catalog. Each title will have a download link at the top of the full description page so you don't have to worry about searching all the providers for the eBook you want.  Simply search for a title, author or subject and click on the audiobook in the result list.
