Don’t have time to read? Well, you don’t have any excuses any longer, thanks to the Estherville Public Library and Wilbor?

Who’s Wilbor?

Wilbor is a downloadable audio book program available now at the library. Patrons can check out three audio books at a time. The downloads will stay on your computer for one week. You can of course save them to your iPod or DVD and listen to them later.

Estherville Public Library Director Carolyn Walz said Wilbor expands the library’s offerings. There’s a link to Wilbor right on the library Web site.

Just a few of the classic fiction titles include Absalom, Absalom by William Faulkner; Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy; Brave New World by Aldous Huxley; The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky; A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens; The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand; Frankenstein by Mary Shelley; The Great Gatsby the F. Scott Fitzgerald; and Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift.

A few of the titles in Spanish include Benito Cereno by Herman Melville, ElConde de monte Christo by Alexander Dumas, Cumbres Borrascosa (Wuthering Heights) by Emily Bronte, and Don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes.

Anyone who has questions can just call the library at 362-7731 and ask Beth Reineke, the library staff Wilbor expert.
