Getting Ready for a Thanksgiving Trip?

Think Audio Books!!

Whether you are flying or driving, audio books are the perfect companion for any trip! Audio books are fun to listen to and can fulfill school reading requirements over break. Listening to stories read aloud is beneficial for all readers for many different reasons, including:

  • introducing higher reading levels
  • introducing new genres
  • expanding vocabulary
  • improving critical thinking skills
  • enhancing family bonding and discussion when listening together
Stop by the library to check out and audio book or use our online resources to check out an eAudiobook with you Oak Brook Public Library Card! 

And so many more...
