11/22/14:  Problem with downloading OneClickdigital files to iOS 7 & 8 devices

The OneClickdigital Development Team has discovered that the update Apple has made is preventing the OneClickdigital Media Manager and other programs from transferring content to iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices. They have notified Apple and they should be working to correct the problem as soon as possible and will notify us when the problem is resolved.

As another alternative to transferring through the OneClickdigital Media Manager, you may try the OneClickdigital iPhone application for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch with iOS 5.0 or later. Once you have downloaded the app to your device, you will be able to log on using the account you already created on the OneClickdigital website.

To access the OneClickdigital Media Manager Application, in iTunes go to the iTunes Store and enter "OneClickdigital" in the search field in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Please keep in mind that you will need to create an account with iTunes, if you do not already have one, to access the OneClickdigital Media Manager.


Downloadable audiobooks for adults, teens, and children.  Most of these titles are always available and you won't have to place holds.  There are some exceptions to the "always available" rule, including the Pimsleur Language Learning titles.

OneClickDigital Webinars for library patrons are offered monthly.  This 45-minute online tour of the service will show you how to create an account, install the OneClickdigital Media Manager, search for content, manage checkouts, and download and transfer audiobooks to listening devices.
