ROAD TRIP READY
Now that warmer weather is in our sights and the last week of school is on the horizon, it’s time to start planning the details of those upcoming vacations. Whether it’s a road trip to grandma’s or an airplane getaway to a tropical island — we have the goods to keep you and your crew entertained as you head towards your final destination.
Audiobooks: Find an audiobook the whole family can enjoy or grab the earbuds and let everyone choose their own read. Audiobooks aren’t only a great way for a family to enjoy a book together, but they also help build vocabulary and improve comprehension in struggling readers. They are available at your local library branch on CDs and Playaways or they can be downloaded or streamed through Libby and Hoopla.
Ebooks: Trying to pack light and avoid that extra checked baggage charge? Take a look at our expansive ebook selection on Libby and Hoopla. Download the apps to your devices and save room in your luggage for souvenirs. Don’t forget to take a peek at TumbleBooks for the little ones. There you’ll find picture books with added animation, music and narration for a fun read-along experience.
Movies, Television & Music: If that beach read thriller is getting a little too intense, take a break and cleanse your palate with a light-hearted rom-com or queue up your favorite summer tunes through Hoopla. You’ll not only find movies, television and music, but audiobooks, ebooks and comics, too. It’s a great one stop shop — except it’s free with your library card.
