Sometimes your eyes need a break, or you want to experience a book while taking a walk, driving on a roadtrip, or relaxing in a hammock. The public libraries have got you covered!

Johnson County/Olathe Public Library

These libraries have partnered to provide you with a huge variety of FREE audiobooks. All you need is a free public library card, and the Axis 360 app on your device.

E-books and audiobooks are both available through the same program/app– Axis360. The directions included below demonstrate how to “filter” the search results by format. Book cover art images in Axis360 include either a “book” or a “headphone” icon to indicate the format.
