Other resources
The Youth Services Division boasts a collection of books consisting of many genres and formats, as well as media such as CD's, DVD's, audiobooks, ebooks, and even puppets. 

Check out the Tumblebook e-book collections, as well. TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.

The library also offers three New Tumblebook Audio Collections:

  1. TumbleBookCloud Junior is a perfect complement to the TumbleBookLibrary – adventurous young readers can read beyond the picture book level with ebooks, graphic novels, National Geographic videos and audio books.
  2. TumbleBookCloud has over 500 titles for middle/high school students including content to support the Common Core Curriculum.
  3. AudioBookCloud is a great resource of online streaming audio books for all ages. No need to download any books, just click and listen. You can access the books online anywhere anytime.

Check the Kids Catalog for items currently available, and also for fun suggestions for your next book to read.

Kids can also use the filtered computers located in the children's area of the library. Our "Websites" page links to many educational and fun sites just for kids.

At your next visit to the library, don't forget to visit the library's pet snake, Rocksssanne!
