For example, some days I spent quite a bit of time driving to and from hearings at different courts. Instead of listening to talk radio, or surfing car’s radio dial, I can instead control and listen to what I want by borrow audio books, and music. The library is easy to use, accessible from your computer, and you never have to worry about losing your book and accruing overdue fees. In order to check out books from the Greater Phoenix Digital Library, you'll have to get a library card to one of the subscribing libraries, which include most of the public libraries in Maricopa County and Pinal County. Fee downloadable software from the site is required for your computer and digital device. Once installed, log-in using your library card and pin. Then you can browse the extensive catalog, and check up to ten titles at a time with a few clicks of the mouse. I check out and download audio books, transfer them to my iPod and listen over my car stereo as I drive. Depending on the week, I can easily polish off a book using what used to otherwise be “wasted time”. Besides audio books and music, the library also offers movies and e-books. I understand it is one of the largest collections of its kind in the country. I seldom have a problem finding the title that I need or want. Check it out: phoenix.lib.overdrive.com.
