Children's Library

Link to new Children's materials is now located on the sidebar.

Good news! The Library has subscribed to three new Scholastic reading programs that you and your child can access from  home using your JTL library card. They will also be available on patron computers at the Library. You will need to use earbuds to listen to the programs while at the Library. You may bring your own, or you can purchase a pair from the Library for a small fee. We hope you enjoy these programs.


BookFlix is an online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks from Weston Woods with related nonfiction eBooks from Scholastic to build a love of reading and learning. This engaging resource for children in grades Pre-K – 3 will help early readers develop and practice essential reading skills and introduces students to a world of knowledge and exploration.

TrueFlix allows students to graduate from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” and master content area knowledge in science and social studies.

FreedomFlix features dynamic e-books of the Children’s Press best-selling Cornerstones of Freedom series that include embedded popup features such as maps, timelines, virtual tour clips, primary source videos and audio clips that makes history come to life.

FRACTURED FAIRY TALES

You all know the story of the Three Pigs, the Gingerbread Man and the Princess and the Pea. Fractured Fairy Tales simply take these familiar stories and turn the upside-down to create tales with a new spin. We’ll talk about some of our favorites, and then share a few fractured tales. We’ll create a group tale, and you’ll leave with lots of new ideas to create your own tales at home!

MODULAR ORIGAMI STAR
