Don't Forget the Audiobooks!!

If you have the money for gas, we have the audiobooks to make that road trip enjoyable. Listed below are some of the Library’s newest recorded titles. The list includes MP3-CDs which need CD players that support MP3 files. Most new CD players and many DVD players have that capability, including CD players in newer cars. This new format holds up to 16 1/2 recording hours so most books will be entirely recorded onto one disc. Not all titles are available as an MP3-CD so we still order plenty of the other kind. Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon contains 42 sound discs! The Library also has a large collection of books on audiocassette but we order very few new titles. And downloadable audiobooks? Due to budget constraints, the Library has no definite plans for subscribing to an audiobook service at this time.
