If you prefer an audio version, you can download a WMA file of the book straight from our website.  You need a computer with a Windows operating system, but after downloading it in Windows, you can transfer to an iPod or other portable device.

Did you know all the great things you can do at any DC Public library?

1. Got a mobile music device? We have audiobooks you can download from the Web site – about 6,000 of them, with new titles constantly being added. We were also the first library system in the country to offer iPod-compatible downloadable audiobooks.

2. There’s a lot of fun free stuff to do in this city – some of it is even at the library. For example, the West End
location offers Qijong, Tango and Yoga Meditation programs. Around the corner, we’re setting up a series of beverage-making workshops called “Brew ‘n Book” and planning a Saturday bicycle tour of some different downtown libraries.

3. Are you part of the Twitterati? We’re tweeting. Join 1,600 others following us @dcpl.
