Listening Books provides an audiobook lending service for anyone in the UK who finds that an illness, disability, learning disability or mental health condition impacts on reading or holding print books.
Listening Books is offering a number of free memberships for Orbit customers living in Hastings, St Leonards, and surrounding areas. They are available for anyone who would benefit from the service, but may be unable to cover the annual membership cost. They do not require any financial proof, just a self-referral that this cost would be a barrier to joining.
Listening Books has over 9,000 audiobooks available in their library from bestselling authors including Matt Haig, Hilary Mantel, Marian Keyes, Jojo Moyes, Philippa Gregory, Peter James, and many more. We also support the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 with set texts, study guides and revision aids available in audio format. Members can borrow titles in three easily accessible ways:
- Sent directly through the post on mp3 or CD (with no postage costs or late fees)
- Downloaded to an app which is available for smartphones and tablets
- Streamed online.
The membership on offer covers all these options, so customers can choose what works best for them.
