The Belfast Free Library has a growing collection of digital resources, to which we subscribe for our patrons use. New titles will be added throughout the year, so check back often.
This is a collection of downloadable audiobooks and ebooks from Recorded Books, which you can listen to or read on an iPod/MP3 player, smartphone, tablet or computer. There are currently 200 e-audio and 85 e-book classic titles in the collection, many of which can be used by an unlimited number of simultaneous users. To get started you must either sign up online at the library, or use the barcode number on the back of your BFL library card to sign up on your computer or device.

MARVEL! Maine's Virtual Library
MARVEL! provides every resident of Maine with access to a collection of full text articles and abstracts from magazines, newspapers, journals and reference books that are credible, reputable resources. MARVEL! also provides students, business people, public library patrons, and higher education students and educators the ability to search a number of resources at one time for information. The value of the resources provided in these databases would be over $700,000 per library!

Now, local writers, bands, musicians, filmmakers, photographers, artists and cultural arts organizations can publish their digital books, music, images, videos and other media directly onto BiblioBoard for inclusion in the library’s collections. With a little social media savvy, this can be a springboard for developing a fanbase both for the artist and for the library.
