MCPL One of Five Libraries to Win 100 BBC Audiobooks!

Thanks to a generous donation, MCPL is now home to 100 new BBC audiobooks!

Recently, five libraries were awarded brand-new audiobook collections thanks to the friendly efforts of some audiophiles. Hundreds entered BBC Audiobooks America's Facebook Holiday Giveaway by becoming a new fan during the month of December for the chance to give the gift of listening.

The randomly selected sweepstakes winners each chose their favorite US library to receive a diverse prize package of 100 audiobooks (with a retail value of more than $8500), including titles by bestselling and classic authors such as Mark Twain, Joyce Carol Oates, Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Lethem, Pat Barker, Thomas Friedman, and more.

Sweepstakes winner Robert Cornelison, a resident of Richmond, chose to donate this prize package to the Madison County Public Library!

To help you find these books, the Richmond location offers a list of new audiobooks each month, and the Berea location has a new audiobook section where they are shelved.

The Madison County Public Library is thrilled to have been selected to receive these high-quality audiobooks. We hope that you enjoy them and that you will becomes fans of BBC Audiobooks America and our local donor, as we have.
