Online Audiobooks Going Away (for now)

Please see the announcement below from NC LIVE about our e-audiobooks:

"The MyiLibrary Audio Books service available through NC LIVE will soon change to a new audio book provider and platform, Recorded Books One Click service. The new service will include the same audio book titles available now, but through the new Recorded Books One Click platform. Though NC LIVE staff had originally planned to simply swap one service out for the other, the Recorded Books One Click platform will not be ready until later this fall.
Because MyiLibrary is no longer supporting their audio book platform, and due to the level of patron complaints, NC LIVE will disable the MyiLibrary Audio Books platform from use beginning Monday, September 19th. Unfortunately, this change will result in a gap in audio book service until we are able to begin service with Recorded Books One Click. You may continue to use the MyiLibrary service through September 19th, at which point you will no longer be able to download additional audio books from the MyiLibrary service.
The transition to Recorded Books One Click platform is expected to happen in late October. A specific date for the transition has not yet been announced, but we will continue to provide updates as we have more information. **When the new Recorded Books One Click service launches, all audio book users will be required to create a new personal audio book account. Your MyiLibrary user account information will not be saved or transferred. This also means that any books you have on hold at the time of the transition will not be transferred over to the new platform."

Please note that the MyiLibrary ebooks are not changing and will remain available.  We will let you know more about the new platform for the e-audiobooks when we have more info,
