What is Internet Streaming?

Chapter and Hearse by Lorna Barrett
Just Babies: The Origins of Good and Evil by Paul Bloom
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People by Amy Sedaris

Internet streaming is a way of listening to our audio books online via the internet. Instead of having to download a file completely before being able to listen to it, our members hear the sound as it arrives at their computer or device and therefore do not have to wait for a complete download before listening to their chosen audio book.

Members can simply visit our website and log in with their Username and Password. Once in the members only section, they can search for a book they would like to listen to and follow the link to listen to it from their computer or device. They are able to click through the chapters as they wish to hear them, and bookmark their place, so they can return to exactly the right spot next time they log in.

Internet streaming users can listen on as many devices or computers as they like, and can borrow 2 audio books at any one time. Once they have finished an audio book they can return it immediately to listen to more. This means members can listen to up to 10 audio books each week, whether it be in their home, school or work place and at any time during the day. As well as this, our members don’t have to worry about breaking, losing or sending audio books back to us, as every thing is done automatically online.

We have over 4000 fiction and non fiction audiobooks available for streaming for both adults and children, including many set texts, study guides and subject specific titles. To see which titles we have available to be streamed, search the catalogue.
