New! - Wonderbooks

Wonderbooks are changing the way kids read along. Every Wonderbook is a print book with a ready-to-play audiobook inside. Kids will press play to read along with their favorite books and then switch to learning mode for literacy learning and fun.

Patrons may check out Wonderbooks for 14 days. We currently have a selection of picture books and a couple chapter books for families to enjoy! Ask our staff for assistance on locating the Wonderbooks.
