News Date: 
04 May 2017
This month`s Cardholder perks celebrates everything audiobooks!
Audiobooks are great for keeping up on your reading, especially when you`re on the go and don`t have time to curl up with a good book. Just grab your device, throw on an audiobook and you`re on your way. Whether it`s a commute to work or school, running errands, working out, or even just doing chores around the house, audiobooks can help fill the silence and make the time fly.
Peace Library System offers a wide range of audiobook services that are all available with your library card!
