Penguin Audiobooks withdrawn for library purchase through OverDrive and other Platforms

Dear Library Partner,

Effective immediately, Penguin Group has suspended the availability of download audiobook titles for library purchase across all vendors. This change does not affect any Penguin audiobook titles currently in your library’s catalog. Your library will be able to purchase additional copies of titles released before 11/14/2011. However, titles released after this date and new releases will not be available, per instruction from the publisher.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Erica Glass at Penguin Group directly: Erica.glass@us.penguingroup.com.

Sincerely,
OverDrive’s Collection Development team

We want to thank everyone who has raised this issue with their communities and their MPs. @Cqualtro has championed disability rights in the past and we're hoping she will help #RestoreAccesibleBookFunding now https:/ww.cbc.ca/news/politics/accessible-reading-funding-cut-1.5938122

It's #WorldBookDay and we should be celebrating. Instead we are fighting on behalf of 1 in 10 Canadians with print disabilities. Please RT to help us convince @CQualtro and @cafreeland not to cut $4 million in funding for #accessible books 3 million Canadians rely on. #cdnpoli
