Our Children's Services staff provides quality, fun programs and exceptional resources for kids, teens and families. Besides all of the wonderful books on the shelves, we offer Launchpads for digital learning, audiobooks, board books for the youngest of readers, Grab and Go Kits, Book Bundles and Early Learning Kits.
Playaway Launchpad is the first-ever secure, pre-loaded learning tablet created just for children. Each Launchpad is pre-loaded with high-quality, ad-free learning apps grouped by age, grade level, subject area and theme. Click the photo above for a listing of all of the available Launchpads by subject and age level.
Our Early Literacy Kits are a great way for you to take stories and learning home from the library. They are filled with books and interactive toys that children can use to build those crucial early literacy skills. Each bag has a theme and also comes with a sheet full of useful tips on how to use the items in the bag. We currently have kits on the following topics: Counting, ABC's, Colors, Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See, and Opposites.
We also have Grab and Go Bags filled with books and activities suggestions when you don't have time to browse.
Going on a road trip? Pick up an audiobook/book combo. These kits have a CD of the book being read, and the book so your little one can follow along with the story.
Book Bundles are a hand-picked set of at least 5 chapter books grouped by genre for older children.
