Digital Media & Downloads

Welcome to Queens Library's Digital Media & Downloads webpage where you can download books, audiobooks, music, and videos. Newspapers and magazines in Spanish, Russian, and Chinese are also available from the language sections of the site. All of these items, commonly known as eMedia, are downloadable to a personal computer, pocket PC, PDA, portable media center, or other electronic device running Windows Mobile 5.0; some are readable online and do not require downloading. For access, you will need a valid Queens Library card and PIN. A hi-speed Internet connection is recommended. Please note that while eMedia may be downloaded onto a home or office computer, these items are not accessible on the library’s computers.
