Library: Hoopla adds Disney eBooks for all ages

2664

Disney has produced so many wonderful movies and books for families and kids of all ages that it would be almost impossible to pick just one favorite.  Recently, Hoopla added Disney eBooks for all ages with the beloved characters from the movies taking on new challenges and adventures.

 

There are three categories to select from.  Titles for kids 8 and under include “Beauty and the Beast: Belle’s Special Treat”; “Big Hero 6: Hiro to the Rescue!”; “Cars: Off the Fast Track”; and of course “101 Dalmatians: The Puppies’ First Christmas.”

Vickie Hardin is Associate Director of Public Relations for Bossier Parish Library.

Kids in the 9 to 12 age group will enjoy “Book Two: Flight of the King Animas”; “Artemis Fowl”; “Science Fair”; “Clementine”; and “Tangled.”

 

“Star Wars Rebels: Battle to the End”; “Endless”; “Teen Beach 2”; and “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 Junior Novel” are also good reads for teens.

 

These titles and more make for easy entertainment during the upcoming holidays and are just a click away at www.bossierlibrary.org.  Click on Hoopla to download your selection.  They are “simple to access and use, without the hassle of having to return the items you’ve borrowed, all you need is your BPL card, a web browser, smart phone or tablet to get started.”
