Locating Audiobooks in the Library

The Library’s collection of abridged and unabridged audiobooks currently includes both cassette and compact disc formats. Though the number of audiobooks on cd is still smaller than those on cassette, the two collections circulate about equally.

Fiction and nonfiction in a wide range of genres and subjects are available.

In most Library locations, both fiction and nonfiction audiobooks are shelved alphabetically by the author’s last name. In the Films & Recordings Department at the Main Library, nonfiction audiobooks are shelved by number, so those numbers are included here.

To limit your search to audiobooks when using the Library’s catalog, select “Book on CD” or “Book on Cassette” from the “Media Type” pull down menu.

All audiobooks may be requested for delivery throughout the branches in the Library system.

Find out about and place holds on new audiobooks through the New Audiobooks section of our website. You can sign up to have this feature automatically emailed to you as part of our weekly @ the Library newsletter.

Ask your librarian or contact the Films & Recordings Department (513-369-6924) for more assistance.
