Want to increase circulation of your library's audiobooks?
Try this: create a display of...
- books on CD, and some Playaways if you've got 'em
- a flyer advertising OverDrive (get marketing materials here), and
- this list of examples from Book Riot's 40 Ways to Listen to Audiobooks Even If You Don’t Commute (don't miss the extra ideas in the post's Comments area.)
Sez article author Rachel Smalter Hall:
Although I used to listen to audiobooks only if I had long stretches of time to fill, now I power one up even if I’m just standing in line at the post office. I’ve usually already got one in my back pocket anyway, thanks to my cell phone. Those stolen minutes add up, and before I know it I’ve squeezed in an extra book or two from my To-Be-Read pile. (And as a bonus, I’m not as cranky in that 20-minute post office line.)
