What brings parents and children from all over the city to Chandler Public Libraries? Storytime! High Five is a great addition to Storytimes at Chandler Public Library, and introduces five key concepts in early literacy: Talk, Sing, Read, Write, and Play. Read on to learn about how to keep reading with ebooks!
The library’s closure might mean you can’t check out physical books to read to your little one, but those daily reading sessions don’t have to stop. Use your library card and PIN to download ebooks and electronic audiobooks from Cloud Library to share with your child during lunch time, bath time and, of course, bedtime.
Here are the basics:
- Each title checks out to you for 14 days
- Limit of 10 titles checked out at one time
- Set your filter to “Available Titles” to avoid long holds lists when just browsing
- Set your filter to “All Titles” if looking for a specific book
- Set your filter to only show “ebooks” or “audiobooks” if you have a preference
Here are a number of titles we think look really fun to share with kiddos 0-5 and their older siblings.
