Ever wish you could listen to a good book on the run but don’t have an I Pod or MP3 player? Try the new Playaway audiobooks. We are testing them out and would like your opinion. They are small pocket sized players with the book preloaded. You provide a headphone (earbud) and battery. We have headphones for sale at the library if you don’t have one for only $1. We have three bestsellers ready to loan today.

Try one out and tell us what you think. Should we buy more?

This month, Galway Public library began a new service that allows people to download audiobooks from home with a click of their computer mouse. Users can listen to digital audiobooks through their computer or transfer them to a windows media-compatible MP3 player. (iPods are not compatible)

The service is free to anyone with a public library card (don’t have a card? Stop in to get one!).  A speedy Internet connection also helps. (Have a laptop? We have wireless at the library. Or, bring in your MP3 player and download audiobooks with a library computer.)

Over 1600 titles for adults and children, including popular fiction, classics, nonfiction, business, biography, and self-help are available 24-hours a day.  In addition, people will have access to 100 Pimsleur language instruction programs, including instruction for people learning English.

Sign up for an account and get more information at http://netlibrary.sals.edu then log-in at www.netlibrary.com. 

Major funding for this service is provided by the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors. Additional funds are provided by Crandall Public Library and the Southern Adirondack Library System.
