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 ear buds 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.

COMING SOON.....SCIENCEFLIX!!

PIPE CLEANER PETS

Inspiration for this program came from seeing Boutique-Sha's new book Making Pipe Cleaner Pets. She offers instructions for creating 23 different dog breeds out of pipe cleaners, but we'll only tackle a few. The book will be in our collection after the workshop, so you'll want to check it out!

 Kids and adults alike will enjoy making these quirky canines.

WINTER MUSIC & MOVEMENT CONCERT FOR KIDS
Presented by: TURTLE DANCE MUSIC

Turtle Dance Music has a unique style for working with children. We love people who march to the beat of their own drum. Our flagship program which has been hailed as 'fantastic", "fun", "turtle-iffic!" and "the best show we have ever had" is the Inclusive Music and Movement Concert For Kids! a humorous and animated performance that appeals to children as well as families! The show is incredibly funny and parents have said things like, "My five-year-old loved the show at the Lebanon Fair. She never stopped laughing." The show is also designed to be accessible for children and teens with special needs. We have developed all of the activities and techniques in the program based on research from the Autism Intervention and Early Childhood Development Program at Montclair State University and from ideas and schools of thought from New York University, Columbia University and Montclair State University. Turtle Dance Music leads the audience through songs that span many genres and decades while accompanying them with hands-on, visual, and sensory experiences that children can take part in. We use several different instruments that children can try out including: Acoustic guitars, Banjo, Technology, Viola, Bass, Saxaphone, Harmonicas, Electric Violin, Didgeridoo & many more!
