The Maury Loontjens Memorial Library offers a variety of formats for reading and listening that go beyond the printed page. By having a library card and using the library's website, patrons have access to thousands of e-books and audiobooks for all ages.
All Ocean State Library card holders can browse, check out and download e-books and audiobooks from the Ocean State Libraries EZone.
In addition to digital downloads, library patrons can enjoy audiobooks and e-books though the library's subscription to TumbleBooks. This service includes three collections for children from preschool to high school ages. These books are always available, never on hold and there is no need to download.
To use any of the collections from TumbleBooks, visit the library's website www.narlib.org. AudioBookCloud is available on the home page. To reach the children's and teens' TumbleBook collections, click on KidsPage.
