Not Just Books: Playaway Bookpacks (fun for ages 3+)

Listen and read with an audiobook and paired books!

The library may be known as a place for free, fun programs and interesting books, but did you know you can find more than just books at the library? It's true! You can find a quick summary of our fun, not-book items by visiting this page.

Walkertown Branch Library has Playaway Bookpack kits available to borrow (for more information on the borrowing policy, click here). Bookpack kits are a fun way to engage with themed books by listening to audio while reading along. The best part is, there's no CD-player required!


What's Inside

Playaway Bookpacks


Borrowing Information

How can they be borrowed?
They can be found in the windowsill to the left of the children's area at Walkertown Branch Library and patrons of any age can check them out with a library card in good standing.
If you would like to update or apply for a library card, you can find more information here.
How long can they be borrowed?
Playaway Bookpack kits can be checked out for three weeks and can be renewed four times.
They can be placed on hold and you can click here to see which kits are available at Walkertown Branch Library or here for kits available across Forsyth County Public Libraries.
How can they be returned?
They can be returned to AV drops outside or to indoor book returns at any Forsyth County Public Library (or any NC Cardinal location). If there is no AV drop outside or it won't fit in the slot, we ask that you return the item inside to minimize damage.
