Listen to a Good Book from the ORL!

Let’s celebrate Spring with the sounds of eAudiobooks from the ORL!

Most know about the eAudiobooks found in popular digital book collections like ORL eBooks (and BC Libraries’ Library to Go), but did you know that eAudiobooks can also be found in some of the library’s other digital collections?

Check-out and download eAudiobooks from OneClickdigital

OneClickdigital is a fantastic source for eAudiobooks because you can find thousands of titles, including quite a few popular titles and bestsellers. Best of all, most of the eAudiobooks in the collection are always available for you to borrow, so you don’t have to sit on wait-lists.

eAudiobooks can either be downloaded to the free OneClickdigital Media Manager program, which is used to transfer the book to a compatible MP3 player or iPod, or they can be downloaded and enjoyed using the OneClickdigital App on iOS, Android, or Kindle Fire mobile devices.  

Find out how to get started with borrowing eAudiobooks from the OneClickdigital collection on the ORL website:

*Some of the book types offered in TBC and TBC Jr, such as ebooks marked as Read-Alongs and Graphic Novels (which feature sentence highlighting and narration) require Flash, so are not mobile device compatible. TumbleBooks is working on making all of their titles mobile compatible, though!
You can visit each of the collections mentioned above by clicking on the “View all Digital Resources” button found on the ORL homepage, Library membership gives you lots of ways to enjoy eAudiobooks, try one out today!


Each month, the ORL will be featuring one or some of its eResources. Library membership gives ORL patrons access to a wide range of eResources that can be accessed from home and in the library. These eResources can be used for reading and enjoyment, to help you with your research needs, or to learn new things.
