Project History

Maine InfoNet received a $40,000 grant in 2008 to offer libraries in the state the opportunity to provide their patrons access to downloadable audio books. The grant paid for the configuration and support for three years and for one year of maintenance fees. Libraries that subscribe to this service are asked to pay an annual subscription fee which will be used to purchase content and pay for licensing fees.
