(Victorville)– The Victorville City Library introduced a brand new service in July, 2013 offering free digital audiobooks as well as free digital magazines. These services are offered through OneClickdigital and Zinio digital magazines. All that is needed is a “good standing” Victorville City Library card. Library cards from other libraries cannot be used to access OneClickdigital or Zinio.
OneClickdigital has the largest collection of digital audiobooks and titles from all major publishers, with over 5,000 titles available. Users can download up to ten books at a time, and best of all, there is never a waiting list. Books can be checked out for ten days and may be renewed an additional ten days. All titles are compatible using your computer’s media player, or using a portable device. There is the option to transfer directly to an iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire or Nook.
In addition to the digital audiobooks, the Victorville City Library now offers digital magazines. This free service through Zinio digital magazines offers valid card holders 50 of the most requested magazines. There is no limit to the number of magazines that can be downloaded, and there is no check out period. Once a magazine is checked out, it can be kept on the computer device as long as the user wants.
The days of rushing to the library book drop to avoid late fees are long gone, and so are the piles of magazines waiting to be recycled.
The Victorville City Library cards are free; however there is a $2.00 replacement fee for lost cards. A valid photo identification and proof of a physical mailing address are all that is required. The Victorville City Library has much to offer, including a computer lab which offers free computer classes three times a week, with one of those classes taught in Spanish.
The Victorville City Library is located at 15011 Circle Drive, Victorville, CA 92395. The hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am until 8:00 pm. Friday hours are 9:00 am to 6 pm. Saturday hours are from 9:00 am to 5 pm.
