Avalon Free Public Library Media Download Center

The Avalon Free Public Library Media Download Center provides not only eBooks and Audiobooks, but also streaming music and video. Although items are being added to it every month, this is a smaller collection than the South Jersey Audiobook and eBook Download Center. However, as we are only providing service to Avalon patrons, there is less competition for the "hot" items.

South Jersey Audiobook and eBook Download Center

Avalon is a member of a regional library consortitium that manages an online audiobook and eBook download service. The advantages of using this service is that it has a larger collection of both audiobooks and eBooks. The disadvantage is that you are competing with patrons from over 30 other libraries for materials. For "Hot" items, there could be a significant waiting list.
