Listen and explore with different types of audio-enhanced 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 a variety of audio-enhanced books available to borrow. AV² have computer-based audiobooks that have been translated into 12 languages. Wonderplay and VOX books have built-in audio-devices, no CD-player required. Traditional read-alongs come with a CD that includes an audiobook or fun tracks to listen to while you read.
How can they be borrowed?
They can be found in a wooden trough above the picture books at Walkertown Branch Library and patrons of any age can check them out with a library card in good standing. They have orange stickers that say "Read-Along" with different pictograms to depict the type.
