Downloadable eBooks, Audio Books, and Video

netlibrary

Our NetLibrary downloadable titles have moved to the Ebscohost platform! The downloadable audiobook titles formerly available through NetLibrary will still be available to Westlake Porter Public Library cardholders through the end of August.   To access them,  go to one of our Ebscohost databases by clicking this link or choosing “Research Resources” from the top our main web site.  To connect to Ebscohost you will be asked to type in your library card number (all characters, no spaces) and to choose Westlake Porter Public Library from a list.

You will next want to create a new Ebscohost account: 

1.       On the main Ebscohost search page, go to “sign in” on the top right area of the screen

2.       Choose “create a new account”

3.       Fill out the form provided

Now, when you sign in to Ebscohost with your new account, click on “choose database” just above the basic search box.  At the end of the resulting list, you will see “Audiobook Collection” and “eBook Collection.”  Select “Audiobook Collection” and deselect any other boxes that may be checked.  Now you can search for only audiobooks.   The first time you download an audiobook from Ebscohost, you will be prompted to download  and install Ebscohost’s Download Manager.

If you would like to view the eBooks formerly available from our NetLibrary site, select only “eBook Collection” at “choose database” and deselect any other boxes that may be checked.
