Downloadable & Streaming Media

eLibraryNJ is a service provided through our membership in the Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium (LMxAC) that allows patrons to download audio books and ebooks in digital formats to computers and selected compatible devices (now including the Amazon Kindle).

Are you ready to start downloading digital media?

From the eLibraryNJ home page, you can search for a particular audio or ebook, or browse through available item types on the right side of the page.

When you find an item that you would like to download, click "add to cart" on its individual page. You can either continue browsing or proceed to checkout. If the item you are interested in is currently checked out to another patron you can click on "join waiting list" to put a hold on the item.

When you are ready to check out, you will be asked to select your library. The Plainfield Public Library is a member of the Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium, which will be listed as a library option. After selecting it, you will be asked to input your library card number and PIN (if you need a PIN number, please visit our Circulation Department).

For more information including a list of compatible devices, visit the eLibraryNJ Help Pages.
