Audiobooks and eBooks
Digital Book Downloads are audio books or eBooks that are available online from the G.A.R. Memorial Library through the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC).  Once you've downloaded the book you may then listen to it on your computer or supported device; many audio books can even be burned to CD.  You can borrow up to five books at a time and you can even place holds on books that already out.  MVLC Overdrive Digital Library

Another source of Digital Book Downloads is the Commonwealth eBook collection.  Here, patrons can access digital content for free. The easiest way to find eBooks and other online resources is to submit a search using the search box. Once you do so, you will see search results that include resources from all of the vendors that we are currently partnering with: Axis360, EBL, and Biblioboard. When you find the item you are looking for, simply click to download. You may need to create an account prior to downloading and depending on the device you are using you may be required to download an app or other reader.
