On the first of each month, we rotate the blogger round up of audiobook news, reviews, and more shared in the blogosphere in the last month. We host on odd-numbered months. To participate, share a link to your audiobook reviews, news, or features from the previous month (so, for June 1st, share anything posted between May 1 and June 1). You can email them to or by posting them right here. We will collect, organize, and post them for all to share. If you are a publisher of audiobooks or write about them for publication, get in touch.

An amazing way to get your tweens and teens to know the “unfamiliar” bits of your library is to do self-directed scavenger hunts.


You know that your “kids” tend to congregate to one particular area- whether it’s your teen space, a place with the most comfortable chairs or a low table for card gaming, or the place furthest away from the supervising eyes of the non-teen people at the desk.
