Here's the details...

WestCAT Transit is pleased to partner with the Contra Costa County Library to provide instant access to free audiobooks and library services on the bus. With WestCAT’s new "En route Entertainment" you can now listen to over 600 audiobook titles on the bus with Contra Costa County Library’s “Snap & Go” mobile library access.  Wirelessly download audiobooks directly to your cell phone for FREE. It is a great way to pass time on the bus!

To get started, riders will first need to download a QR reader to their cell phone (one time only). The Library has information and instructions located at https://snapngo.ccclib.org.  Once that’s done you can scan the QR barcode with your camera phone and you’ll automatically be connected to library services including hundreds of great audiobook files you can download for free!

Just look for the Quick Response (QR) Code on board all WestCAT Transit buses to access all your favorite titles. QR codes are available on an information poster located above the windows on most of the WestCAT Transit buses, in a smaller version in announcement holders inside of the Lynx and Dial-A-Ride buses without overhead displays, and on the front desk at the WestCAT Administration office.

A valid library card is required to use Snap & Go. For information about obtaining a library card visit: https://ecard.ccclib.org/index.php?do=english.  For additional information about free audiobooks and Snap & Go contact the Contra Costa Library at 1- 800-984-4636 or visit http://guides.ccclib.org/qr

Wait, wait, there’s more! The Library has recently announced that riders will now also be able to download and read eBooks in the EPUB format in addition to the already available downloadable audiobooks. OverDrive just launched an updated version of their software which the Library announced on their website and enewsletter.  http://ccclib.org/

This work was generously supported by funding for 511 Contra Costa projects provided by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Transportation Fund for Clean Air.
