MENTONE – June is Audiobook Month. Who doesn’t love getting comfortable with a good book? It can help the time pass by quickly and also help one drift off to dreamland.
The problem is that you can’t read in the dark and you can’t read while behind the wheel. The solution would be to pop an audiobook in the cd player and away we go. Let someone else do the reading for you.
Celebrating Audiobook Month is easy. Make a list of what audiobooks you’re interested in and then ask about how to access audiobooks through Hoopla Digital and Axis 360.
Bell Memorial Library is open and operating under normal business hours, but asks that anyone not feeling well please stay home. They offer curbside services as well. Call (574) 353-7234 or (574) 551-9007 to request materials or email [email protected].
