We're closing at 5 p.m.on Friday. The Friday Night Feature will return next week.

The Children's Library has three Elementary iPads available for checkout with your library card. The kits come pre-loaded with selected apps geared towards children 5 to 9. The apps are organized into the folders that are similar to our Non-fiction section. As we discover great new apps, we will update the iPad kits periodically.

For younger children, borrow our Early Literacy iPads. For older children, borrow a Tween Tab.
