Children's Library

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

Good news! The Library has subscribed to four 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.

ScienceFlix is transforming the way students access science topics, acquire scientific knowledge, and build a lasting interest in science, technology and engineering. Curriculum-driven leveled content is integrated with interactive features and intuitive navigation in this highly engaging mobile-ready science resource. With its emphasis on the latest STEM thinking and the Next Generation Science Standards, ScienceFlix provides students with a better understanding of science concepts and ideas through hands-on projects, videos, multiple text types and so much more.

SCIENCEFLIX is now available!
