Dorothy Alling Library offers two options to download books from our website. Overdrive, a product of the Green Mountain Library Consortium (GMLC) and RBdigital from the Vermont Department of Libraries (VTLib).Together there are over 20,000 items available with more added on a regular basis. You will need your Dorothy Alling Library card number and password to download a book.

HomeCard patrons from other libraries can only download items via their home library.  Not all libraries participate in both programs. For assistance, please call your home library.

Click on the icons below to get to each download site. For more information please see the product websites.

If you need additional assistance please visit the help section on each website - link on chart below under "Help". We strongly suggest you review the help section before starting a download. It only takes a few minutes and can save you a lot of time and frustration!
