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!

Summer Reading Program

June kicks off the 2014 Summer Reading Programs! This year’s children’s theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read”, which mixes science with summer reading. The Teen Reading program, SPARK, is made up of list of activities, that when completed, earn readers badges that can later be traded in for prizes.

There are a variety of activities for all ages at each NOPL location. Take a look at our events calendar to review and register for upcoming events. Summer Reading Programs run late June to early August with many programs requiring registration. If you sign up online for an event you will receive an e-mail reminder one day in advance in your email inbox. Please let us know as early as possible if you cannot attend an event so we may let those on the waiting list fill your spot.
