New App for Audiobooks

If you are a Berkeley Heights resident with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, the library's audiobook service OneClickdigital has launched an app just for you.  (Android owners can find audiobook solace in the Overdrive Media Console app at instead.)

1.      Go to Create your account (top right corner).

2.      Download the OneClickDigital app from the App Store.

3.      Log in to the app with the account you created in step 1.

4.      Tap “Browse Titles” to browse new titles or search for a title. Tap a book to select it.

5.      Tap “Check Out” (if you only see “Wish List” this means the book is checked out to someone else). The app will download the book.

6.      Press the + symbol after you pause the player to bookmark your place.  (Kind of a big deal since you don't want the audiobook to start at the beginning the next time.)

The fine print:

You can check out a max of 10 titles.  Audiobooks check out for 21 days or less, your choice. Oneclickdigital does not allow holds to be placed on unavailable titles but you can place them on a "Wish List".
