Digital Resources for Kids


TumbleBooks have animated talking books, read-alongs, programmed playlists (organized by grade or reading level), games and more. The books are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. Books can be read online or downloaded! Many items made for iPad.

Bring your imagination and build a masterpiece at our monthly Lego Club.  Get inspired with a few stories and then construct a Lego creation.  We will display what you built in the library for all to see!  We have more than 60 pounds of Lego and megablok bricks.

We normally have two programs, for those ages 6 to 9, and for those ages 9 and up.

Visit our Lego Photo Album on Flickr to see more creations!

Lego Club is usually registration required. Click here for a full listing of Lego Club dates
