      One Click Digital audio book service is being replaced

      Attention audio book lovers: The library has decided to discontinue the One Click Digital recorded books service so that we may bring to you a new platform. While One Click Digital served its purpose admirably, the new platform promises a superior audiobook selection that can be accessed more seamlessly and on a wider variety of modern devices.

      The library will be expanding its offerings through a recent partnership with Hoopla Digital -- a service that offers on-demand content for free -- and all you will need is a library card.

      Through Hoopla, which will be launching in the coming weeks, card holders will be able to download audiobooks as well as movies, TV shows, and music. Unlike One Click Digital, Android users will be able to access these audiobooks through the Hoopla app.

      We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Ultimately we are confident that this descion will bring to you a more valued and useable collection. Stay tuned for an officialHoopla launch coming soon.
