Family-friendly audio books now available at library

Planning a road trip with your family this summer? The Hastings Pleasant Hill Library offers an educational entertainment option for the long drive. Instead of a DVD or video game, you and your family can enjoy a book on tape or CD and have a reading adventure while on vacation. Thanks to a thousand dollar donation made by the friends of the Pleasant Hill Library, the audio book section at the library recently acquired titles for all ages, from “The Dog Says How” to “World War Z”. Many of these titles are read by easily recognizable actors; for instance, Stephen Fry reads “A Bear Called Paddington” on tape. If you and your family are planning an extended stay in your vehicle, stop by the Hastings Pleasant Hill Library for a smart way to spend your time.
