To access the Hicksville Public Library digital audiobook and eBook collection you will need:

  • A valid Hicksville Public library card in good standing
    (You will not be able to use this service if you have any overdue items or if you have any outstanding fines on your account)
  • Access to the Internet (high-speed connection preferred)
  • Free downloadable software that downloads audiobooks and eBooks to your computer.

Please note that digital downloads can be enjoyed at home, at work, or when you travel, but are generally not for use on the computers in your library.
