Do you carry audio books?

We carry audio books in three different formats: on cassette, CD and dedicated MP3 player. We are no longer adding new cassette purchases. You can download audio books from home from our website.TOP

Are the audio books abridged?

All of our audio books are unabridged with every word that the author and publisher included. Some people only want to use an audio book in their car for a short trip and in those cases, we can recommend some excellent titles that are short and still unabridged.TOP

How many audio books can I take out at a time?

Just as with books, we do not limit the number of audio books you can take out at one time.TOP

How long can I take audio books out for?

You can take an audio book home for three weeks.TOP

Can I renew audio books?

Audio books can be renewed once for three weeks.TOP

Can I request audio books from other libraries?

Yes. Audio books can be requested from other libraries just as ordinary print books are.TOP

What should I do if I lose or damage an audio book?

Just as with books, if an audio book becomes damaged or lost while in your care, we’ll ask you to pay for it. Most audio books are very expensive, however we can usually get a replacement for a single cassette or CD which are priced very moderately. If the entire audio book is lost or destroyed, we’ll do our best to work out an arrangement with you.TOP

What are Playaways?

Playaways are very small dedicated MP3 players which come preloaded with one book. They are light, portable and very easy to use. They have speed and volume controls and come with a lanyard so that you can wear them around your neck while you shop, walk or do housework.TOP

Do you carry Playaways?

Yes, the Library has a collection of Playaways, adult, teen and children’s in fiction and non-fiction.TOP

Can I use Playaways in my car?

Playways have a universal jack so that you can use an adapter which will allow you to play the Playaway over the car speakers.TOP
