Love Audio week is 11 – 17 June 2018


Love Audio week is co-ordinated by the Publishers Association and is a celebration of all things audio! The popularity of audiobooks is booming, and here at Wokingham Borough Libraries we stock lots of audiobooks for adults and children. We are constantly adding new titles to our collection.

Why not borrow an audiobook to listen to on your commute, at home, or on holiday? It is a relaxing way to enjoy your favourite authors, and the great narrators really bring stories to life.
