Listen Up! Vermont, known as LUV, was the inaugural project of the Green Mountain Library Consortium. This project initially joined together over 80 public and school libraries in Vermont to provide downloadable audio book service through OverDrive. Today there are 145 libraries in the state using the service.
Downloadable audio books and eBooks allow patrons to access a collection any time, and from anywhere, of titles chosen for the Consortium by a selection committee. LUV works with PCs, Mac's and mobile devices. Currently the collection has approximately: 4,490 audiobooks and 8,272 eBooks which is constantly growing and changing. Over the last year (2016-2017)110,309 audiobooks and 98,457 eBooks were circulated!
Any patron from a member library may access the collection at https://gmlc.overdrive.com/. Approximately 14,022 patrons utilized LUV in the last year.
MARC records are available for member libraries to load into their individual library catalogs.
