What is an e-book?

An e-book (or “electronic book”) is a digital version of a book which can be checked out and viewed on your computer, and in some cases, transferred to an electronic device such as an e-book reader, tablet or smartphone.

What is an e-audiobook?

An e-audiobook (or “electronic audiobook”) is a sound recording of a book that can be downloaded and listened to on your computer or transferred to a portable listening device such as an MP3 player, iPod, or smartphone.

Fremont offers access to thousands of downloadable e-books, e-audiobooks, and music which you can enjoy on your computer, MP3 player, e-reader (such as a Kindle or Nook), or smart device such as an iPad, iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry. All you need to take advantage of these services is a Fremont Library card. 

You don’t need to come to the library to get digital materials. Instead, you can check out and download digital materials from the comfort of your own home. Digital titles are automatically returned at the end of the loan period, eliminating the possibility of incurring late fees.
