Whiting Library offers digital books to card-holders

Now, any patron can use their library card from home to access thousands of books and ebooks – free.

Too dark to drive, bad roads, bad weather? Don’t get cabin fever or stuck without some literary entertainment. Do you have a Kindle, an iPad, any portable tech?

Whiting Library featuredAs we each expand our literary needs beyond print on paper, it’s Whiting Library’s privilege to provide ListenUp digital media. Through a subscription to the Vermont Green Mountain Consortium, the library has access to over one thousand downloadable audio books and ebooks at no cost.

Come to the library or call for more information or try it on your own. Go to listenupvermont.org and take the digital media guided tour. Browse the quick start, download a little software and make your selections. All you need to download either an audiobook or ebook is a compatible portable device (if you don’t want to listen or read directly from your computer) and a library card.

You have up to two weeks for each title with no overdue fees since they automatically expire. High demand items may be placed on reserve. Some convenient titles are always available, no waiting.

Whiting Library is located at 117 Main St. in Chester. It can be reached at 802-875-2277. Hours are Monday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
