MP3-format discs allow you to store a lot of information on one disc. Depending on the age of your CD player, you may be able to play MP3-format discs. Newer players will automatically play these discs, but older players may not. If in doubt, borrow an MP3 format audio book and try it. If it plays, then congratulations, you can access the full range of audio books at the library! If the player says ‘No disc’ then you will have to borrow audiobooks that have multiple discs in the pack.
