Audiobooks for download
Here is an interesting story today on CNN. There are libraries across the country offering audiobooks for download for patrons to borrow. There are libraries in Virginia offering this neat service in Northern Virginia and in Eastern Virginia and in Salem. While it doesn't appear that any nearer libraries are offering this service at this time, it seems to be the wave of the future. So speak with your local librarian, who knows...maybe it will be available locally soon!
Just think, you can go online, pick out the book you want to listen to, borrow it and never leave your home. This would be great for people who are ill, unable to get out for whatever reason, and people who are out of town.
