Friends of the Hudson Area Library Donate New Audiobooks!

In memory of William F. Cranna, longtime trustee and tireless advocate for the Hudson Area Library, the Friends of the Hudson Area Library recently purchased and donated twenty-two books on CD for the Library’s collection.

The titles of the new audiobooks are: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan; Game of Thrones by George R. Martin; Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott; Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones; Leftovers by Tom Perrota; The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern; The Astral by Kate Christensen; The Life of Pi by Yann Martel; Room by Emma Donoghue; The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht; The Help by Kathryn Stockett; The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; Bossypants by Tina Fey; The Snow Man by Jo Nesbo; The Passage by Justin Cronin; The Cut by George Pelecanos; and The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai.

Other titles that will be available soon are When She Woke by Hillary Jordan, The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides, My Week With Marilyn by Colin Clark, The Reapers Are the Angels by Alden Bell, and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.

All titles can be requested online or at the Library. The new books on CD may be borrowed for up to 21 days.
