JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force Personnel Center Directorate of Services officials are sending more than 900 recordable children’s books to learning resource centers at six deployed locations throughout the U.S. Air Forces Central Command’s area of responsibility.

The Air Force Library Program collaborated with the Directorate of Services’ PLAYpass initiative to create the Get Out and READ Program to offer deployed Airmen an opportunity to keep in touch with their children by reading and recording books in their own voices.

“PLAYpass has invested over $30,000 for the Get Out and READ program to send recordable books to learning resource centers at six deployed installations,” said Linda Weston, AFPC Directorate of Services PLAYpass program coordinator. “Deployed Airmen can request a recordable book kit that includes a book, instructions for recording their voice, a pre-paid mailing box and a message card to send a personal note to their families.”

More than 150 recordable book kits are being shipped to each deployed location this month and additional book kits will be made available next year.

The PLAYpass card program provides families of deployed Airmen access to learning, recreation and leisure activities at a reduced cost or free of charge. For general information about services programs, visit http://myairforcelife.com.
