What we are about

Booktalk was formed in 1992 to supply libraries with audiobooks.

Over the years Booktalk has grown, expanded its library customer base and its range of material offered to include books, large print books, DVDs and more.

In recent years Booktalk has evolved further.

It has moved into the technical/digital era through its recognition of the value of the download for libraries and their communities. Booktalk has embraced the new technology with great interest and enthusiasm through its relationship with OverDrive® who provide a comprehensive Digital e-Lending Library Service (e-books, audiobooks and video streaming) for public libraries, academic libraries, school libraries and corporates.  

These are exciting times as libraries add their OverDrive® Digital e-Lending Library to their existing network. The combination of both the physical library and the virtual library is a win for many library users.

Booktalk’s culture is one of immediate service and friendly efficiency.

In addition, Booktalk houses its associate company The Listeners’ Library, audiobook rental, for the end user.
