New Downloadable Audio Book Service

Best-selling and classic titles are now available on demand thanks to the introduction of an exciting new service from Monmouthshire Libraries.

A new free download service offers a choice of more than 600 titles and the county’s library users can access these on their computer, MP3 player or iPod.  More titles will be added each month.

Users can register at any library in Monmouthshire or via the Monmouthshire Libraries website where they will be able to download up to 10 titles.  All titles are available with no waiting lists.  Loans automatically expire after three weeks so there is the added bonus of never having to return books and never risking late fees!

The council’s cabinet member for Culture and Environment, Giles Howard said: “I’m really proud of Monmouthshire’s Library Service and pleased that we are able to add yet another service to what is already on offer.  With the available software it couldn’t be easier or more convenient to enjoy a good book, whether in the car, at home or in the bath!  I hope current library members will benefit greatly and that this will encourage new members to take part too.”

Titles available include ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ by Stieg Larsson, Dan Brown’s ‘Lost Symbol’ and ‘Danny Wallace & the Centre of the Universe’ by Danny Wallace.
