The State Library of Kansas has announced the addition of BookFlix to its children’s online e-book collection.
BookFlix is an online e-reading program from Scholastic, which features pairs of related fiction and nonfiction books. This allows kids to simultaneously be engaged in a story while learning real-world facts and gaining content-based knowledge.
The interactive program will be available to readers along with TumbleBook Library.
“Through TumbleBooks alone, Kansas kids are viewing about 30,000 books per month,” State Librarian Jo Budler said in a news release. “Adding Scholastic titles will be a great way to keep those kids reading and learning.”
Both children’s e-book programs can be accessed by visiting the digital book e-lending page at www.kslib.info/digitalbooks. BookFlix requires a Kansas Library eCard, which is free at any Kansas library.
