For those who enjoy audio books, we just took delivery of nearly 30 new titles! Our very limited materials budget allows us to spend $200 a year for books on CD. That money is combined with similar contributions from other member libraries of the Mohawk Valley Library System with the purchased materials becoming part of a rotating collection.
These 30 new donated titles will be part of MRML’s permanent collection. While I don’t have permission to name the individual, I can tell you they have been extremely generous to us for a number of years with audio book donations. I daresay, probably 80% of our permanent audio collection has been via this particular person’s kindness.
I’ll let you know once the new titles are catalogued and ready to circulate. Audio books are very popular for commuters and vacation travelers. As we like to say here in Libraryland….check them out!
