    Listen to Books

    You can listen to your NPL and MVLC audio books many different ways. We offer audio books on CD, Playaways (MP3 players with a preloaded audio book title), and access to Libby, a collection of digitally downloadable audio books for your PC, Mac, or mobile device. Use the online catalog to see the NPL and MVLC collection of audio books. Use Libby just like a regular library – if a book is available, you can check it out and download it from home.

    Book Kits for Book Clubs

    Check out the Kitkeeper list for a complete listing of book club kits. Select the title, reserve the dates, and have the kit sent to the library for your book club. If you need help with this process, please get in touch with a librarian.
