Early Literacy Station or ELS

ELS are computers geared for young learners (ages 2-8) that come loaded with 60 educational programs that cover topics like math, science, art, history, reading and more. One of our ELS computers has a touch screen, a mini-mouse, and colorful keyboard designed for little hands so it is easy for kids to use. Our second computer has the same features, but does not have a touch screen. These computers are located in the children’s section.

iPads

We have two iPads available for in-house use in the children’s section. Both are loaded with educational applications especially for kids. Parents will need to be present for children to check out iPads and they must have a valid ID available.

Young Adult Nook

We have one YA Nook available for check-out. This e-reading device comes pre-loaded with many books that are appropriate for older children and teens.

TumbleBooks

TumbleBooks provides kid-appropriate e-books, videos, language learning, puzzles and games that are available to use without download or checkout. All that you need is your library card to log in to their website.
