Audiobook Advisory Webinar: How to Talk to Your Patrons about Talking Books
According to Pew Research Center, one out of every five Americans listens to audiobooks. It’s no surprise since audiobooks enable listeners to enjoy their favorite titles while driving, walking, exercising, and more. The OLC hosted a webinar this week on everything you need to know about audiobooks, including digital audiobook apps, physical audiobook containers, and devices required for use.
