Check Out Our Audio Books

Many people may not be aware that the Sargent library offers audio books.  We have 72 books on CD that you can check out.  However, since we subscribe to Nebraska Overdrive, we also have a selection of over 8000 audio book titles available free online.  Audio books are great for long road trips. For those who work in the field most of the day, a radio can get really boring when you’re listening to the same old commercials. Listen to an audio book instead.

Now, if you have a smart phone or tablet, it is a simple task to download an audio mp3 and listen to it. Another option is to download an mp3 to your PC using the OverDrive App and then transfer it to an mp3 player.

Finally, if you don’t have any of the above devices, there is still a relatively cheap solution. Go to Ebay or Amazon  and search for a “car mp3 wireless  FM transmitter” These can be purchased for as little as $3.23. To use this device, download the audio book to any flash drive. Then when you plug the flash drive into the transmitter, the audio will come through your car’s FM radio speakers.

This may all sound a little confusing, but feel free to come to the Sargent library anytime, and I will help you sign up for OverDrive and answer any questions you may have.
