Foreword: January 16

By on

Are you going on a road trip soon? Maybe your commute just got longer, or you are simply sick of listening to the radio. We have some great new audiobooks for you to check out! Audiobooks have the same lending period as print books: 28 days. We collect a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction titles. We also have an ever-expanding collection of juvenile audiobooks that the whole family can listen to. No more fighting over the radio!

According to recent studies, listening to an audiobook can improve focus and attention span. Listening, rather than reading, can also help improve pronunciation and reading accuracy. Audiobooks are also a great alternative to anyone with visual impairment or reading disorders, such as dyslexia.

“Cabin fever” can be especially daunting with young children in the house. Come on by the library on Friday mornings for our weekly storytime and craft. We love to see all ages at the library!

Fact of the Week:

Sales of audiobook titles more than doubled within the last decade, with the industry recording over 2 billion dollars in revenues for the 2016 fiscal year!
