Books with a Bonus!

There are more and more great books with CDs or DVDs included. What a great idea! A picture book based on a song with a CD to sing along. A picture book with a DVD might have a short video or animated feature that enhances the book for you and your child to enjoy together. Non-fiction books with DVDs may include moving images such as archival footage. Or a book about visual art for children might have a CD of pictorial music. Don’t forget read along picture books – you know, the ones with page turn signals. These are better than ever in digital form. We’ve put black dots on these so you can find them more easily in the books with CDs/DVDs section of the Children’s Room.

Start Me Up with Storytime!

With the Summer Reading Games party just behind us, we're remembering all the fun programs that you participated in over the summer. Missed some programs along the way? No need to worry when more fun is right around the corner. Fall storytimes start up in September! Some programs require registration. Others, like Baby StorytimeFamily Storytime and Storytime with Mr. Steve and Friends require no registration at all. An adult caregiver must accompany babies and toddlers up to 3½ years. Questions? Talk to your children’s librarian. Bookmark the KPL Kids Calendar and we'll see you there!
