New Items in the Media Download Center

Here's a sampling of the new items now available in our Media Download Center:

Relentless / Dean Koontz [audiobook download]
Heartless / Diana Palmer [audiobook download]
The Last Secret / Mary McGarry Morris [audiobook download, MP3 compatible]
6 Killer Bodies / Stephanie Bond [audiobook download]
The Story Sisters / Alice Hoffman [audiobook download]
The Scarecrow / Michael Connelly [audiobook download]
KnockOut / Catherine Coulter [audiobook download]

This new service offers a catalog of talking books and music and video selections, all of which are available for free download to your personal computer or portable device. To use this new service, you need:
--a current and valid library card from Mount Clemens Public Library or one of our media group partners
--your own personal computer, laptop, or portable device with access to the Internet (dial-up is not recommended for using this service)
--a copy of the free download management software loaded on your personal computer

When you visit the download site, you will find a handy quick start guide and FAQ link on the left side of the page. This information will guide you through the process of downloading and installing the free software, and tell you which types of portable devices are supported. Once you have the software, you can select items, place them in your cart, and check out (the service works in a manner similar to Amazon.com and many other online shopping sites). After you have checked out with your library card, your items will be available for download and you will have exclusive use of them to the end of the loan period, at which time they will be automatically returned to the library collection and made available for other users. No overdue fees, ever! If a title you want is already checked out to another user, you can place a hold on it, just as you do for regular library material, and you will be notified via e-mail when the item is returned to the digital collection and becomes available for your use.
