Audiobook Help

The New Hampshire Downloadable Books Service provides both audiobooks and eBooks. The audiobooks are available in two different formats: MP3 and WMA Audiobooks.

The WMA audiobook format is being phased out and eventually all audiobooks will be in the MP3 format. We recommend that you select MP3 format whenever possible to avoid as many compatibility issues as possible.

MP3 Audiobooks

  • Can be downloaded to a Windows or Mac computer and transferred to an audio player, including iPhone/iPads (with the help of iTunes). Hint: Use pages 10-15. Learn more. Abridged transfer instructions
