Wall-mounted ipads in the Children's Room!

Have you seen our new wall-mounted ipads in the Children's Room?

Each week, each ipad will display a different app for you and your child's viewing and playing pleasure!  The ipad near the storytime room will feature apps that promote early literacy skills.  The ipad in the non-fiction will feature educational apps for kids in grades K-5.

This week our apps are:  The Three Little Pigs by Nosy Crow and Weird But True by National Geographic
