Camp Verde Community Library received a Libraries Launching School Readiness grant from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State. The grant was used to purchase 50 media-enhanced Wonderbooks from Playaway©. Wonderbooks are high-quality print books with a ready-to-play audiobook inside. All the titles can be viewed in the online catalog and are now available for checkout at Camp Verde Community Library.
We invite the children and the parents and guardians of Camp Verde to visit Camp Verde Community Library to explore Playaway© Wonderbooks. For additional information, contact Letty Ancira at (928) 554-8397 or Leticia.Ancira@campverde.az.gov.
The State Library is committed to supporting Arizona libraries in their efforts to provide informal education opportunities for all. The Launching School Readiness opportunity provides access to digital content to give children across the state access to safe and secure recordings of books without the need for internet access, helping to meet community needs and encourage literacy.
“These enhanced-media book collections provide libraries additional resources needed to promote literacy, bridge the digital divide, and make technology accessible to everyone,” said Holly Henley, State Librarian and Director of Library Services, Archives and Public Records.
This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The project is supported with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
