Read It, Hear It, Love It.
Audiobooks are experiencing a boom in popularity and it is easy to see why. People enjoy listening to audiobooks because: (1) you can do other things while listening; (2) audiobooks are portable and you can listen wherever you are; and (3) people enjoy being read to.
If you find you don’t have time to sit and read a traditional book, why not try an audiobook? Listening to a gifted narrator brings a completely different dimension to the reading experience.
Providence Community Library has hundreds of audiobooks in our eZone catalog or on Hoopla for you to download and listen to for free on your phone or listening device. Call or come on in so we can walk you through the process or find something in our collection to pique your interest.
Once we have you hooked, you are going to have to try out our newest book club just for audiobook fans, Listen UP! Audiobook Club.

December's audiobook selection is the 2020 Audie Award Winner for best female narrator, Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson
Lillian and Madison were unlikely roommates and yet inseparable friends at their elite boarding school. But then, Lillian had to leave the school unexpectedly in the wake of a scandal, and they’ve barely spoken since. Until now, when Lillian gets a letter from Madison pleading for her help. Madison’s twin stepkids are moving in with her family, and she wants Lillian to be their caretaker. However, there’s a catch: The twins spontaneously combust when they get agitated, flames igniting from their skin in a startling but beautiful way.
Kirkus calls this book, "A funny and touching fable about love for kids, even the ones on fire".
