What is Alaska Digital Library?

Formally known as ListenAlaska, the Alaska Digital Library (ADL) is a free service, provided by libraries around the state, that lets you borrow e-books, audiobooks, and music from a digital collection.

E-books are available for reading on Kindles, Nooks, and many other e-reader devices. Audiobooks and music are offered in MP3 format to listen to with MP3 players, iPods, smartphones, and more. All media types can be played or read directly on a computer, without transferring to a device.

Getting Started

All you need to start using Alaska Digital Library is a valid library card, your account's PIN (password), and an internet-enabled device.

Go to the Alaska Digital Library website, sign in using your library card and PIN, and start browsing. With media available 24/7, your library is always open!

For step-by-step help getting started, stop by the Homer Public Library or give us a call (907-235-3180). If you're away from home, try the online guide.


Updates and News

10/30/15: ListenAlaska is now the Alaska Digital Library! It has been many years since ListenAlaska was only for listening to audiobooks. The new name better reflects the variety of formats currently available for checkout (e-books, audiobooks, and music), and also provides flexibility into the future. Happy downloading!

10/10/14: Overdrive has retired the WMA format for audiobooks and music. Only MP3 audiobook formats are displayed in ListenAlaska, unless there is a title only available in WMA format. The total number of audiobook or music units will remain the same. This streamlines the download process for new and returning users because MP3 titles are compatible on all platforms running the Overdrive app.

10/8/14, A statement from the Alaska State Library: It has come to our attention that Adobe Digital Editions 4.0 may collect information about the e-books on your computer, whether or not they are checked out with that application, and send the information, unencrypted, to their servers.  MORE INFORMATION
