Eugene Library now offers audio books for download
The Eugene Public Library is now offering audio books that can be downloaded for play on a Windows-equipped personal computer and some mp3 players, though the popular iPod is not compatible.
Hundreds of audio books are available, and more choices will be added in the coming months.
The audio book files expire after two weeks so there is no need to return items - or incur overdue fines.
Cardholders can download items by going to www.eugene-or.gov/library and clicking on the ``Library2Go'' logo.

Free copies of the chapbook, featuring 25 new poems about peace and hope, will be available at the library event and also at the choir's performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams' ``Dona Nobis Pacem.''
