The Lowdown on Downloads

Posted By on Thu, May 4, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Thanks to the Memphis Public Library & Information Center, you can now download 700 e-audio books (whole or in-part) onto your computer, PDA, or a CD. The charge is $5 per title, and the "check-out" period is 21 days. (“Returns” are automatic: no late fees.) According to the library's Lillian Johnson, the service is a convenience for those who normally borrow audio books. But the library also sees it as a way to reach impaired Memphians who cannot read a traditional book. What you'll need: a library card, a PIN, a Visa or MasterCard, access to the Internet, and free software off the library's e-books Web page. For more info, go here. or call LINC at 415-2700.
