New Bookpacks for Kids

Listen up! Kids can listen to their favorite books while they read with a new playaway bookpack, now available at the Main and Warmack Libraries.  A bookpack comes with 4 or 5 children's books, plus an audiobook of all those books. The audiobook is a playaway - a self-contained unit with no tapes or discs. Just pop a AAA battery in, plug in your headphones, and you're all set.

While the Shotwell Branch doesn't currently carry bookpacks, they have nearly 60 children and young adults' playaways for checkout.
