eTalking Book content
The library service aims to have a varied selection of eTalking Books available to our customers. We have recently moved to a new provider and plan to add more content to increase the collection on a monthly basis. As we operate within a small budget stock suggestions can be made by emailing email@example.com. Please give details of the book you would like to suggest and why you feel it would be a worthwhile addition to stock. All recommendations will be considered, but it may not be possible to purchase all suggested items.
eTalking Book of the Month
This month's eTalking Book of the month is Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay for adults. The story of the disappearance of three girls and a schoolteacher at Hanging Rock has captivated audiences for generations and this story is due to hit TV screens soon with Natalie Dormer starring.
We also have Sir Charlie Stinky Socks by Kristina Stephenson, an eTalking Book full of adventures for young children to enjoy.
