eAudiobooks

The Bryan+College Station Public Library System offers electronic audiobooks from two sources: Overdrive and RB Digital (formerly OneClick Digital). Information about both sources and links to them are below. The library system also participates in AudioFile Magazine‘s SYNC program, which provides free downloads of elecronic audiobooks during a 13-week period starting in April of each year. If you need help with any of our electronic audiobook sources, contact a librarian at (979) 209-5600 or stop by the Reference desk.
