Books for Your Mp3 Player

For all you book lovers with mp3 players or those who may be getting one for the holidays, there's now a new place to get downloads.

The Leroy Collins Public Library offers a downloadable book service. There are more than 1,000 audio books available in the mp3 file format to download onto your portable device or computer.

Helen Moeller, Director of the Leroy Collins Library, says, "It has a whole series of language, instruction tapes. It has fiction and non-fiction, bestsellers. For the longest time we couldn't get freakanomics fast enough to our customers, but it was available as a downloadable, so sometimes it is easier to get than the hard copy."

The service is free for library cardholders.
