Fun fact! In the last nine months, the RBDigital service through GoWYLD.net has circulated 27,000 of its 36,000 available unlimited and single use downloadable audiobook titles. With 70% of these coming from titles with less than five total circulations, it goes to show they’re reading more than just the best-sellers out there.
There’s never a wait for most of the State Library’s audiobook offerings, thanks to the launch of RBDigital Unlimited earlier this year. With this service, more than 34,000 of those audiobook titles have unlimited, simultaneous use access, so there’s never a hold list — no matter how many other people are listening to the same book. It adds up to reading choices galore, with no need for your patrons to wait.
In addition, thanks to the contributions of many libraries, the Wyoming State Library still purchases single user titles from publishers like Blackstone, Simon & Schuster Audio, Macmillan, Books on Tape, and Recorded Books within the embargo period of one year.
