What is Axis 360?

Axis 360 is a collection of electronic books and audio books that you can borrow from the Library and use on your own device - most smartphones, tablets, mp3 players or computers.  

You will need:

    •    A device
    •    An Axis360 account
    •                   First time users login using your TC3 ID number as both the Library Card ID and PIN.

                      You may change the PIN after initial login.
  •    The Blio App (for ebooks on iOS, Android, Nook HD, Kindle Fire or Kindle HD)
  •                   Install the App on your device and create a Blio account.

  •    The Acoustik App (for audiobooks on iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows OS)
