Continuing to serve our patrons in the digital age, the Florence County Library System has added e-books to its collection while greatly expanding its digital audiobook collection. This addition of e-books along with more audiobooks is made possible through the Jasmine Digital Library, the South Carolina Low Country consortium of seventeen other libraries to share resources and to pool purchasing power.

Currently, there are over 16,000 titles available for selection, in a wide variety of genres. Each title automatically expires at the end of the lending period and can be downloaded to various devices such as the iPad, iPod, Kindle, Nook or to a PC.

To begin accessing the new e-books and audiobooks, Click Here. After downloading the required free software, patrons can login with their library card number and catalog password (PIN). The password is the last four digits of the library card number, unless this has been changed by the user.

Jasmine has a help section to assist with downloading ebooks and audiobooks. In addition, the library offers thirty-minute drop-in appointments in how to download and use e-books and downloadable audiobooks with various smart devices. You can find a schedule of our workshops below (click the image for a larger version):
