The Kids’ Page

Have you visited the Kid’s Room on our website? We have some really cool features to bring the joy of digital reading to your family…

Bookflix (new!) offers over 100 classic video storybooks paired with related nonfiction books for a rounded reading experience.  You can choose read-aloud or silent reading, and about a third of the books are in Spanish as well as English. Learning is enhanced by games, related web links, and information about the author.  You’ll need to login with your library card to use this resource outside of the library.

Tumble Book Library presents animated stories as well as read-alongs for early readers to more advanced (chapter book) readers. There are also non-fiction books and related videos and games. Tag your favorites and create playlists!  Access books in English, Spanish, or French. Login is required outside of the library.
