What is Downloadable?

Downloadable is Listening Books' audiobook download service which is available to all members. Titles can be downloaded to a portable device in order to listen on-the-go.

Most titles are available as DRM-protected WMA files and can be transferred direct to a PC and a selection of portable devices. If you have an iPod or similar Apple device, you will need to download the title to your PC first before transferring it across. Unfortunately DRM-protected WMA files are not Mac or Android compatible and the only tablet they will currently play on is the iPad. However, we do offer a selection of titles as MP3 files and are hoping to add more to the library in the near future. These titles can be directly downloaded to a Mac, portable Apple device and Android phone as well as many other mp3 players.

Over 5000 titles are available in the WMA format, including a range of fiction and non-fiction titles available for adults and children. Members can download at least 2 different audiobooks at any one time and can choose their own lending period.

With our online service there is no need to worry about breakage, loss or waiting for delivery of titles as audiobooks are automatically returned. It's easy to use and full instructions are included in members' welcome packs. Our friendly library team are on hand should you require any assistance.

If you are already a Listening Books member visit Downloadable from this website then follow the simple instructions. Or if you'd like to see more detailed instructions, please follow this link.
