Libraries launch free audio book download service

Libraries in Cumbria have launched a new audio book service allowing members to download books free of charge.

Users will have access to more than 600 books, with new titles added every month to the service that can accessed day and night.

Downloads will be automatically deleted after three weeks which also ends the risk of incurring fines.

A council spokesman said they were striving to keep the library service at the forefront of new developments.
