A Step-by-Step Guide to Accessing E-books Through BookFlix, by Lindsay Bandy

 

There are so many amazing online resources through the library’s web site, but how do you find them? How do you use them? What are they, where are they, and why should you use them?

Fear not!

I’m here to help.

Today I’m going to show you how to use Scholastic’s BookFlix, which I use regularly for virtual Story Times. BookFlix is my personal favorite e-book resource because….

  1. The books featured are top-notch, well-known titles
  2. Books are featured in fiction/nonfiction pairs so you can have fun and learn at the same time
  3. Each story is slightly animated and gives you the option to read along with the narrator.
  4. Each story pair comes with extra resources and games on the sidebar so you and your child can explore beyond the books!

Here’s how to get to BookFlix in 5 easy steps, starting at the Manheim Community Library homepage.
