On the Road Again

September 12th, 2011

Hi there! New library staff member Heidi Huff, here, newly minted MLS from IUPUI.  And YES, that’s my real name (not some fictional character as someone suggested earlier today.)

Currently, I’m commuting to Richmond from Indianapolis.  But in talking to all the students and staff members I’ve met this week I discovered that many, many of you are commuters too.  I’ve met some of you from Oxford and Greenfield and here and there in-between.  Don’t even get me started on how far Venus Williams would have to commute if she were driving back and forth to campus.

Here’s where the library comes into “play.”  The library has audio books (formerly known as books on tape) in the Browsing Collection – next to the Circulation desk – that you can check out to listen to while you drive!   There are over 200 to choose from but this is what’s currently on my list:

  • The Art of Talking to Anyone
  • Stuffed: Adventures of a Family Restaurant
  • Hunger Games
  • Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover
  • The Man Who Loved Books Too Much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession

“How did you find the audio books in IUCAT?”  You might ask. Just make sure to select “Richmond Library-Audio Books Collection” from the location menu.  You can search with blank boxes above to see the entire collection or use title, author, or keyword searches to narrow it down.  Happy Traveling!!
