There's no time like the summertime to pack the family into the car and hit the road!  Family road trips bring with them the opportunity to create memories and bring families closer together.  Bonding can come in many forms, and listening to stories while on the road can be the perfect activity to pass the time together! 

Digital audiobooks, downloaded from the Bay County Library System, provide resident Bay County cardholders a free, easy way to listen together- even if you're miles, states, or countries away from your local branch!  Take a look at a few of our recommended reads below, or contact your local branch for more recommendations!
