#JIAM2011 June is Audiobook Month

Step one: grab great Get Caught Listening promos – sound clips of favorite authors to incorporate into a radio Public Service Announcement, posters to highlight your library’s audiobook downloads or physical collection, YouTube videos to add to your website – all highlighting the pleasures of listening to literature.
