The Nassau Digital Doorway collection allows you to download digital versions of popular titles to your computer, iPod/iPhone/iPad, or Android device.  From your computer, you can read the titles on the screen, or transfer them to a portable device.  Some audio titles may be burned to CD. 

The database contains titles for adults, young adults, and children.  You may have up to 5 audiobooks/ebooks checked out to your account at one time.  You have access to the audiobooks you have checked out for a period of 7 days, and ebooks for a period of 14 days.  To check out an audio/ebook, you will be asked to select your library from the list, then enter the 14-digit barcode from your Library Card.  Please contact the Library (516-379-3274) for assistance.

Note that before you can download and play the audiobooks, you must download and install the Overdrive Media Console.  Before you can download and use ebooks, you must download and install Adobe Digital Editions.  Both programs can be downloaded free from the Nassau Digital Doorway page.
