Planning for Family Trips

If your family is fully vaccinated, you might be planning your first family trip soon. If you are, don't miss out on these free resources available to our patrons!

Stop arguments in the car by downloading an audiobook everyone can get behind - and give your group something to discuss afterwards. While our Family Road Trip Audiobook collection does include the usual all ages fare like The Hobbit and A Wrinkle in Time, those with a higher average age in the car might consider a celebrity biography or a true-crime thriller for the trip! Be sure to check the run time of your downloaded audiobook - some titles have run times of six hours, while our Audiobooks for Smaller Ears collection contains many stories that will run out after an hour.

Not in the mood for a story? Try downloading tracks from Freegal, or stream for free while you're at the beach! Going to a place where you'd like to speak another language? Mango can help you order your meals and more.

Planning to read on the beach? Why not engage with our Online Book Club by picking up the current selection The Leavers by Lisa Ko? The Leavers is available as a no wait download on Hoopla and through the Online Book Club itself!
