Staff Picks: Try an e-audiobook!

Posted by marysue on

Between OverDrive and RBDigital, I am always able to find something to listen to while I’m driving the kids around, cooking dinner or just enjoying a few minutes of quiet. I’ve found some great books simply by searching titles that were available.

The most recent one I have enjoyed is Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.  The book describes the events that take place before, during and after a private plane crashes into the Atlantic Ocean.  The author’s description of each character’s actions keeps you guessing until the very end.

To access e-audiobooks, check out the library website’s e-media resources link. A wide selection of adult e-audiobooks (and e-books) are available through both the Overdrive and RBDigital apps, which download to various devices, including tablets, phones and MP3 players. Within the apps, you can search by title, author, keyword or genre. Please note that you will need your library card number to check out e-audiobooks; however, since they are automatically returned when your checkout expires, you’ll never incur a fine!
