Three great ways to keep finding new stories

While the statewide stay-at-home order remains in place and library buildings are closed, you and your kids can still find new stories to explore together from your digital library.

1. Unlimited access through TumbleBookLibrary

One more thought… turn on those captions!

With the captions turned on, stream content through Kanopy Kids, a collection for children highlighting films and TV series that help kids develop empathy, mindfulness, and self-esteem through entertaining and educational videos. Find episodes of Sesame Street and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood as well as Common Sense Media ratings to ensure parents have clear guidelines on which films are age-appropriate. It’s another option for fresh, kid-specific content.
