Williamsburg Regional Library Digital Offerings Expand

March 22, 2012

Grants from Friends of Williamsburg Regional Library (WRL) have expanded access to the library’s digital offerings.

OneClick Digital, a new collection of downloadable audiobooks contains nearly 3,500 unlimited-use titles and an additional 437 titles that can be checked out to one user at a time. These audiobooks can be played on most Apple devices (iPods, iPhones and iPads) as well as on many mp3 players.  Users can check out up to five titles at a time, and they can be renewed twice.  As many as five titles can be placed on hold at once.

To access this new audiobook collection, visit wrl.org/audiobooks to create a free OneClick Digital account with a WRL library card. Useful videos on getting set up with OneClick Digital will be found there under the Help tab.

Friends of WRL grants have also expanded access to Freegal, an online music collection that includes several hundred thousand songs from the Sony Music catalog.  Response to the service over the past year has been so positive that the library now offers an unlimited download package. This allows WRL cardholders to download up to three song titles per week and eliminates the need to create a waiting list. Access Freegal at www.wrl.org/freegal.

Additional assistance on both of these newly expanded services can be found at the libraries’ reference desks, or by calling 757.259.4050.
