Yesterday I was chatting with my coworker Elizabeth about audiobooks. We’re both always on hold for audiobooks through the Ohio Digital Library, but sometimes we have a gap while we’re waiting.

For the past two years, no adult program has brought in as many people as our wildly popular Tai Chi.

A new book comes out and you’re dying to get your hands on it, or at least your metaphorical hands because the book is available for download from the Ohio Digital Library on the Libby app. There’s a hold list for this marvelous book (drat!), so you put yourself on the list and wait. And […]
