The Westport Public Library has a new service for parents planning trips with their children called [email protected] Public Library.
Parents should provide their e-mail address and phone number, and they will receive a message about when to pick up materials to prepare their children for their travel destination packed in a colorful travel backpack, an announcement said.
The backpack’s contents vary for each destination but might include stories, music, films, art books, and audio books related to the trip. The items need to be returned to the library, but the family can keep the backpack.
“We’ve made travel packages for places around the globe,” said Children’s Librarian Deborah White.
“And we’re often told that the whole family gets so much more out of the trip when, together, they’ve enjoyed a mini-cultural immersion before leaving.”
