In this day in age of iPads, iPods, computers, and smartphones, local children are still enjoying paperback books this summer. Beth Lokken, youth services director at the Sturgeon Bay Library, says even with all the new technology consuming the public, she still sees teens picking up a traditional book for leisure reading.
Lokken says audiobooks are a great resource and alternative for active youngsters on the move who may not be able to pick up a book while mowing lawns or traveling. Most local children will be trading in their summer reads for textbooks next week when area schools resume classes on Tuesday.
