Summer Reading is on - online! Are your kids looking for more things to read?

Check out this streaming video service - free with your library card!
Create a free account with Kanopy by linking your library card, then click "Go to Kanopy Kids." Find the "Imagine Your Story" collection in the scrolling banners or use this link to view the list of animated children's books. Selections include favorites like Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, classics like Where the Wild Things Are and fun new titles like Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs.
