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.

The “Spoon Man” is a Published Author who offers a hilarious interactive comedy program for all ages. He gives a real stirring performance. Everyone will really eat him up. No bibs required. The “Spoon Man” has a totally clean act. He never uses dirty silverware. The “Spoon Man” will leave a lasting impression after playing on you (literally). It’s a spoonful of family fun.

His program contains several outrageous impressions such as Glen Miller and Elvis combining together, A Heavy Metal Spoon Player and A Rap Spoon Player. He has an audience sing-a-long competition. He creates a Mountain Band out of members of the audience. You may also see him play forks and knives. In addition, if that is still not enough, everyone has an opportunity to get “SPOONED.”
