Speedy Reader kits are collections of series books, or a set of books by a particular author, that can be checked out as a whole. There may be ten books in the series but they will only take up one space on your card.
It's a small collection at the moment but it will continue to grow and is housed beside the NEW kids books.
You have to remember, these are not cheap collections so if the whole set needs replacing, it may range anywhere from $45-$80+. Individual book prices and collection prices are listed on the outside of the set container.
Checkout period will still be three weeks with one renewal (total of six weeks).
We hope that our speedy readers out there will have a good time with these and parents will rejoice at not having to field questions of 'when is the next book coming in?'
