Audiobook Library Suggestions (April) - Literature

Categories: Audiobook Library

Human-narrated audiobooks truly make the difference in ensuring a student engages with and comprehends the books that they're reading.  Our volunteers spend hours recording these books to secure the rights for all students to learn and out of their love for reading and education. Here's a list of audiobooks that have been newly recorded and added to our library.  Enjoy!
