Calibre Audio Library

A Few for February - New Books

The Day Parliament Burned Down

We have added 33 more titles to Calibre's digital library for February - Just 9 brand new titles for adults and 1 for our Young Calibre library which is also enjoyed by many of our adult members but we have also converted 23 of your favourite older books to digital. All digital titles are now available on USB memory stick, MP3 CD or via streaming.

Some of our carefully chosen new titles are commercially produced audio books which we edit in our sound studios into Calibre format including creating 10 minute tracks for your ease of listening. Other books are high quality digital recordings made by our team of highly skilled and very dedicated volunteer narrators.
