@ Gravenhurst library

GRAVENHURST – The Gravenhurst Public Library not only has hard copy books and eBooks, but did you know it also has audio books?

Audio books are great when you might not have the time to sit with a cuppa and enjoy a good book. Do you commute or are you planning a long trip? Need to get some house work done or just taking a stroll? We have lots of options that are suited to every need.

Playaways are self-contained portable audiobooks that fit in your pocket. Listen to the latest best seller while getting the household chores done or keep yourself entertained at the gym. All you need is a battery, a pair of headphones and you’re set to start reading.

We also have the traditional audiobooks with multiple discs. These discs play on any cd player, whether in your car or at home, enjoy a book while multitasking or just relaxing. We have a wide selection of audiobooks for all readers from Steven King to Debbie Macomber, as well as some non-fiction; we have something for everyone.

In addition, the library has a partnership with the CNIB to bring Gravenhurst Library Patrons even more audio books.  We have over 150 MP3 audio book titles. An MP3 audio book is one CD with the entire book recorded on it. No need to change discs. They play on most CD players, DVD players, computers, and in the car.  We have DAISY digital readers available for check out at the library. The DAISY reader is an easy-to-use device designed specifically for listening to MP3 audio books.

Come in to the library to learn more about these awesome ways to gobble up more books. More titles are always arriving.

Another great service that the Library offers each year around this time is the Paul Sass Tax Clinic. Paul has appointments available on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting March 1 and ending April 12. Come in and book your appointment now, spots are filling up fast.
