Access to Audio Books and eBooks are available through the State Library of Kansas. Just go to your nearest public library (or our library when it opens again in August) for a Kansas Library Card. Then you will be able to access the growing collection of digital and electronic books.
We now have access to Tumblereadable books, an online subscription service that includes classics and teen fiction.
Ask me (Miss House) for the log in information, or there are bookmarks at the desk with the user id and password written on the back. Once you log in, it takes you to your choice of books. It's well worth checking out.
The SYNC project offers a pair of free YA audio-book downloads each week. The downloads are paired thematically, with one contemporary title and one “vintage” title. You have one week to download each pair, but you can listen to them at your leisure.
