Our audiobooks must not be modified, copied, reproduced, transferred, distributed, leased, licensed or publicly performed in any way, are lent to members for their own non-commercial use only and will be returned to Listening Books or, if downloaded, will be deleted from any portable device once listened to and any discs the titles have been burnt to destroyed at the end of the lending period.
If you have a Listening Books tablet, that tablet remains the property of Listening Books and will be returned where possible to Listening Books on the termination of your membership.
Listening Books offer all types of audio for a variety of interests and tastes. Members are expected to monitor their own content and choose accordingly. Our children's catalogue has been put together with children in mind but the responsibility remains with the parent or guardian to monitor appropriate content.
To the best of our ability, we include information regarding whether a book contains violent or sexual content. However, we can only do this where we are informed about content by the publisher and we take no responsibility for any titles that are not labelled but contain such content.
