The library has very few books on CD or tape: mostly items such as poets reading their own work.  We are, however, participants in the Maine Infonet Download Library.

This service allows users to "check out" audiobooks by downloading them to the Cloud Library app.  The loan periods are 7 or 14 days. 

One other way to obtain audio books is to do a "word" search in the Maine Infonet catalog with the phrase "sound recording" and some other word(s) that describe your book interest: title, genre, author, etc.

Example: mystery
