eBooks at ACPL

The Allen County Public Library loans Overdrive audiobooks and Adobe eBooks to ACPL library card holders.  According to the ACPL, “These eBooks are for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy them, give them away or re-use them under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included with these eBooks or online at”   A library patron is allowed to check out up to 10 eBooks/audio items at any one time.  On is also able place up to five print and five eBooks/audiobooks on hold.

To checkout and download, you need the following: 
  • A valid library card
  • Internet access
  • A computer or device that meets the system requirements for the type(s) of materials you wish to download
  • Free software for the computer or device on which you wish to use the materials available at this site

As my husband is in the car a great deal for work, he enjoys listening to audiobooks to help pass the time.  There are also Kid titles that you could use to calm the troops on a long car ride.  Besides being free to download, another frugal aspect of these eBooks is that there is no late fee.  At the end of the loan period, the titles expire and are automatically returned to the library.
