Audiobooks downloadable through the Athens Regional Library System

Patrons of the Athens-Clarke County Library and others in the PINES system can now check out audiobooks from the Georgia Download Destination. The system requires use of your PINES library card and the free program OverDrive Media Console to manage the "check out" period. A download of a title will last three days before expiring, but some titles grant permission to be recorded on CD. Excerpts from the recordings are playable through Windows Media Player.

exciting news -- although 3 days seems like a rather short time for an audio book. I've listened to audio books in the past that were 12 hours total running time, and I would split them up over my commute (I commuted out of state 2 x per week for a while).

Surely they can be renewed though...
