It is possible to rent an audio book from the Library online using Digital Download. I have used the online system several times to listen to an audio book. The list of books is a bit limited but I do find many of the books I like on the system. The rental time is 10 days which I find is more than long enough to listen to a book. The system works on the pc, tablet and cell phone. I use the system at least once a month to listen to a book instead of going to the library to get a book.The book can be an ebook also.
