Summer Reading – Listening Edition

Need to read but don’t have time to stop moving? We’ve got you covered this summer! If you haven’t tried an audiobook, now’s a good time to try one out. Whether you’re taking a road trip, working in the yard, or doing housework, you can get all the enjoyment out of reading without stopping what you’re doing. It’s like “storytime” for adults!

The theme for Summer Reading this year is “Libraries Rock” – so we’ve put together a list of  music-related audiobooks for you to start with. So, switch from jammin’ out to your favorite tunes and rock out to a great story instead…
