What's new @ the library

Audiobooks@your Library

Have you heard a good book lately? Yes, indeed, you can hear a book read aloud by borrowing one of the many audiobooks at Bracebridge Public Library. In fact, the Library has 2 different collections to choose from: audiobooks, or talking books as they are sometimes called, on CDs and as Playaways.

Many of our patrons may already be familiar with the books on CD since they are perfect companions for long road trips or for those people who can no longer read print. Playaways are even more portable because they do not require any player at all. They are small enough to fit in a shirt pocket and require the listener to simply plug in earbuds and go. You can listen to a Playaway while jogging or walking the dog or exercising in the gym.

All audiobooks are available on loan for a 3 week period and can be renewed once, as long as they are not from the New Book Shelf or on hold for someone. Both collections have popular fiction and non-fiction titles.

The Library also provides audiobooks in both formats for children and young adults.

On the New Book Shelf this week, one can see audiobooks on CD for adults by Lisa Scottoline, Erica Bauermeister, Jonathan Kellerman, David Baldacci and J. D. Robb. Brand new Playaways by James Patterson, Lisa Gardner, Danielle Steel and James Grippando are available as well.

Why not expand your reading/listening pleasure by trying one of these audiobooks available at the Bracebridge Public Library today.
