Teen Summer Reading Suggestions: Audiobooks

Posted on June 24, 2020 at 12:00 AM by Elizabeth Land

The 2020 Summer Reading Program theme is Imagine Your Story. Summer reading returns to the York County Public Library in June! This year's theme is Imagine Your Story, in which we celebrate fairy tales, folk tales, fables, mythology, and more. With that in mind, our librarians have created lists of suggestions of some of our favorite books — both physical and digital — available for you to check out from York County Public Library. We will feature these lists here throughout the month of June.


Today we'll highlight some of our favorite audiobooks. Narrators bring life to all kinds of books, from realistic fiction to horror to fantasy and more! No matter your interests, there is an audiobook for you! See our favorites below.
