Digital Downloads Without the Drama

Posted on December 13, 2013 at 6:00 am

You have an eReader. We have eBooks. We should get together!

Whether a tablet, smartphone, eReader or MP3 player, bring it to the library to find out how you can enjoy eBooks and downloadable audiobooks on a variety of devices.

Although we’re happy to answer questions any time, Saturday and Sunday (Jan 11 and 12) at the Spokane Valley Library and (Jan 18 and 19) at the  North Spokane Library, knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer specific questions, focusing on popular devices at scheduled times. Check out the schedule for your device below.

It’s easy to download eBooks and audiobooks, and it’s free to all residents of Spokane County with a library card and a device.

Just bring:

  • Your library card number
  • PIN
  • Email address
  • Your Adobe ID and password
  • Either your Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or iTunes ID and password (depending on what device you have).

If you need help setting up an Adobe ID or email prior to your workshop, please Book a Librarian!

    I used to use the digital content for fiction books but was told in 2012 that I could no longer use it because I live in spokane city limits. Is that still true?

      Hi Betsy,

      It is true that you must live in the county to access SCLD digital content, but as a city resident you have access to a similar service through Spokane Public Library. Check their website for details.

    Will you be doing the digital classes at the Regal St. Library (by Albertsons)? Just not convenient to drive so far.

      Hi Patty,

      We will not be offering the classes at the Moran Prairie Library at this time, but you can schedule a one-on-one appointment with staff at Moran Prairie at your convenience. Use the Book a Librarian form, and we will get in touch with you. We look forward to hearing back from you.

    Is this service available for Kindle devices? I don’t see them listed. Thanks

      Hi Melissa,

      Kindles will be covered at Spokane Valley on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 2:30 and at North Spokane on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 2:30.

  • Karen

    Do I have to come into one of the libraries to renew my library card?

  • lyndoll

    I just found this comment page. Will you be repeating the class for kindles?

      Hi Lyndoll, we don’t have plans at this time to have another Kindle class. However, you can view the class materials on the Technology Classes page. If you would like some one-on-one help with your Kindle, you can Book a Librarian using this form.
