Audio for Everyone

Do you ever feel like you can't find time to read, can't understand half the names in a book, or simply don't want to fight with the dark in order to read at night? An audiobook might be the answer!

Audiobooks are an excellent way to engage with a book. You can listen when you might not be able to read, such as while lying in bed at night. If you get carsick, audiobooks are also a great way to enjoy a book in a car without feeling ill.

The person narrating an audiobook can even make a good story better. For example, The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot is read by Anne Hathaway, the actress who plays Mia in the movie. This might appeal to you because you're already connected to the main character’s voice.

So next time you’re thinking about picking up a book, consider an audiobook. If you have a computer, smartphone, or another device that can download content, our online resources make borrowing audiobooks easy. And whether you prefer downloads or CDs, you’ll find all sorts of options in the library catalog.
