Try some of the best early literacy apps for kids!
Beginning Thursday, March 23
iPads will be available for use in the Library during regular hours.
Not all apps are created equal - so how do you know which ones to choose?
We've researched, tested, and purchased so you don't have to! Staff have collected the best of the best early literacy apps for you and your child to play at the library. We are pleased to offer 10 iPad minis for use within our library. Each iPad mini contains a selection of fun apps that will help your child learn letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and more.
Recommended for children ages 2 - 6 and their grown-up
Adult supervision required
Available at the Circulation Desk
A staff member will scan a parent or guardian's card to borrow the device.
(Not available to take home. They are for use within the library only.)
Remember: no app can replace your lap!
Your child's technology time is best spent with you. The conversations you have - about the things you're seeing on the screen, what to do next in the game you're playing together, or how to use and care for the device in your hands - will make the experience so much more valuable for your child. For these reasons, we kindly ask that you stay with your child while the iPad is in your possession.
