Hello Book Lovers!
As we move slowly toward the day we can all be back at the library, more and more customers have begun exploring our digital media services. With newly enhanced free access to multiple catalogs, you can easily download or stream e-books and other media—and many items are available on-demand.
You might be thinking, “But there’s so much! Where do I start?”
Allow us to help. The Youth Services team has compiled a collection of our recommended e-books and e-audiobooks. You can find links to these Great E-Reads on our KIDS website, as well as details about which services offer each title. Many of them are available on-demand with no waiting list.
