Thanks to a $1000 grant from the Ridley Education Foundation, the library just added FORTY MP3-CDs to our new audiobook section.MP3-CDs are full-length audiobooks on just one MP3-CD disc. They can be played on any CD player with MP3-CD compatibility, or they can be transferred to iTunes or Windows Media Player. After one easy upload, the audiobook is ready for listening! These MP3-CDs join a collection of Playaways and traditional books-on-CD in the new Audiobook section. The audiobooks are located right next to the graphic novels in the library. We have so many fabulous audiobooks to choose from that it may be hard to decide on one to listen to. Think about trying:
