UPDATE: Due to low participation, we are unable to create a NEBASE NetLibrary Shared eAudiobook Collection. We are working with NetLibrary to rethink how we can offer NetLibrary eAudiobooks to our members. We will keep you posted as we progress in our discussions. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Nebraska Library Commission and NEBASE are pleased to announce the launch of the first NetLibrary Shared eAudiobook Collection. The collection offers new releases and best-selling leisure titles, including sports and recreation, romance, classics, mystery, young adult books, children’s books, arts and entertainment, westerns, and horror. Order by June 15, 2007, to take advantage of this limited-time offer.
