Huntington Beach Central Library, a stand-alone library system a cut above the OC library system (we think), is offering something new. In Feb. there was a kick-off for MP3 audio books. Free, downloadable audio books were “checked out” by over 400 book tourists who stopped by the information table at the cool Overdrive Digital Bookmobile. Bookmobile was set up to show the use of MP3 technology which replaced the old casette tapes in offering easy downloadable audio books for listening on portable MP3 players. Library users of all ages are already accessing books and enjoying the new service.
Even in publishing today, you can opt to get your book in sound bites rather than ever having to read a word. To download free audio books: http://e.hbpl.org.
