New Playaway Bookpacks!


(Pictured is Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Friendly Frenemy, I Survived Hurricane Katrina, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Upside Down Magic, and I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor)

We just received a bunch of new Playaway Bookpacks! If you haven’t checked them out before, they are kits with Playaway preloaded audiobooks that also come with a text copy of the book. This way you can read along with the narrator as you listen! Some of the new ones are pictured, but you can find all of the Playaway Bookpacks next to the Launchpads, behind the Children’s internet computers. If you haven’t taken a look at them before, now’s a great time to try them out, especially if you are signed up for our winter reading program and want to mark off the “Listen to a Book” snowflake. You are signed up for the reading program, right?? If not, you can pick up a log from the Children’s desk or print one off from the front page of the library website.

Playaway Bookpacks

We are excited to bring to you our latest collection in the Children’s Department:

Playaway® Bookpacks!

playaway bookpacks

We currently have 25 Playaway Bookpacks in our collection.  These are all-in-one “book set kits” that are packaged in an orange case – each case has several books and the audio of those books.  Bookpacks are an easy way for both beginning and struggling readers, auditory and special needs learners, and ESL patrons to develop literacy skills.

With Bookpacks, readers can improve their reading comprehension and retention, build phonemic awareness and fluency, and expand vocabulary skills.  They are a great literacy tool for all ages and reading abilities!

Here’s how to see what Bookpacks we have in the Moline Public Library collection:
