LISTEN UP! June is National Audiobook Month

Kick off your summer with an audiobook!  Whether you are an avid listener already or curious to try one out, June is the perfect time since it is National Audiobook Month.  Audiobooks are a great way to take reading on the go as you travel this summer, work in the yard, or even just chill out by the pool.  It’s also a great way to get your reading in for MPHPL’s Summer Reading Program.
