In our school, we've encouraged students to obtain public library cards so
they can use Hoopla OR  Overdrive for audiobooks.   Students with IEP's or
504's clearly stating a need for audiobook materials, have Learning Ally or
accounts.  Bookshare and LibriVox have a large number of audiobooks in the
public domain.  Fortunately, middle schools and high schools who are
reading The Pearl
To Kill A Mockingbird
The Great Gatsby
or other famous classics can find audiobook versions through these

Additionally, the copyright has expired on these famous classics
from 1925.

Best, Michelle Walsh
