Now, thanks to the Johnson County Library, you can hear what all the fuss is about for free without leaving your house. The library recently started offering downloadable audio books on its Web site. The service allows cardholders to listen anywhere (at home on your computer, in the car or on your iPod) to one of the 4,000 titles it carries in audio format. The checkout period is 14-21 days. See www.jocolibrary.org.
