Kits are still popular with families. I do not order cassette tapes any longer because most people have switched to CD players. I'll keep these around as long as people are still checking them out. I made a limit of three Kit checkouts per person/card. I often spend time replacing bags and checking to make sure that the correct cassette and book are grouped together. Also on this rack are the popular Bob books which are grouped in hang bags with three or four of the tiny paperbacks per bag. Bob books are really good for beginner readers. There are very few pages and a limited vocabulary.
These are Juvenile Fiction and Non-fiction on CD and Cassette. The Friends of the Library have a standing order for Recorded Books. I order books which are not on Recorded Books.
At the very beginning of the Easy picture books section are these Easy books on CD. These are great for people traveling on vacation to entertain children on a long road trip. Most of these are 30 minutes in length or less.
