Unshelved comic strip for 5/19/2016

June is Audiobook Month


June is Audiobook Month!

When I was a kid, my parents checked out cassette tapes of Lake Wobegon Days and The Burns & Allen Show before a long road trip. I didn't know you could do that! I thought libraries were just for books. That was a life-changing discovery. Over the years, listening to stories in the car became one of my favorite parts of traveling, and it has certainly kept me from nodding off on particularly tedious stretches of highway. (I'm looking at you, U.S. Route 50 in Nevada.) So, I was pleased to see that Books On Tape and Listening Library included "Speed up any road trip with family listening" on their list of ways to celebrate June is Audiobook Month at your library.
