    Posted on: Wednesday, July 25, 2018

    Not too long ago, if you wanted to experience music from your library, your options were limited to checking out CDs or DVDs of your favorite artists and performances. One drawback to this is the fact that the title you’re looking for may already be checked out. But have no fear!

    Posted on: Tuesday, July 24, 2018

    Growing up in a landlocked state, I never really worried about sharks…now, alligators are another story but that’s for another time, anyhoo for those of us who wonder what would really happen if a tornado was filled with deadly sharks (this is tornado alley after all!) and who find the deadly toothy grin of a great white fascinating…“SHARK WEEK” is upon us and we have to prepare! I’ve included books, ebooks, audiobooks, dvds and streaming videos!

    Posted on: Thursday, July 12, 2018

    Read to Me - stories read by a narrator

    Read it Myself - child or parent can read the story

    Read & Play - stories with an interactive element

  • How to Prevent the Summer Slide
    Posted on: Tuesday, July 10, 2018

    The summer slide is learning loss that happens during the summer when a child goes for an extended period without reading or engaging in learning activities. This can cause children to get behind in school and result in the loss of up to two months of reading and learning achievement. This time adds up, causing them to lose years of learning achievement with each passing summer. The summer slide accounts for two-thirds of the achievement gap in high school students.
