Hey catharinethecat, you need to transfer the audiobook from your computer to an mp3 player, a tablet or maybe even a phone, and then the man in the nursing home can listen to it. Or you can perhaps burn CD's from your computer, but that is a little expensive, and time consuming, and it depends if you have a disc player installed in your computer, and also you will need some software on your computer that does the burning. I'm not sure if this helps 1.5 years after your question, but maybe it will answer someone else who may be wondering the same thing! .......signed, Just another library user who has gone through many learning curves in the last few months!
