Books and Audiobooks

Download Audiobooks and eBooks

Georgia Download Destination allows Athens-Regional Library System cardholders to download audiobooks and ebooks for free. You may check out up to five books at a time; once you have checked out a book, you can download it to your computer or to a portable device such as an mp3 player, ereader or an iPod. The files on your computer automatically deactivate at the end of the check-out period, so you never get late fees.
