Children's Books for your iPad

We often talk about all the fancy and exciting apps grownups can download for their iPads. But did you know there are apps for the young (or young at heart) in your life as well?! Kirkus Reviews just started an online iPad app review page and is highlighting 5 children's books apps they recommend. The five range from very simple to very complex. The Green Eggs and Ham app encourages an emergent reader to read along. The Alice in Wonderland app lives up the mayhem of Lewis Carroll's original book. My favorite is the pop up Peter Rabbit Storybook. This app plays like a typical lift-the-flap toy book you'd find at any bookstore, but in a digital format. Take a look! And Happy Digital Reading!

Access My Library via Your Mobile Device

Access library resources — even when you're not at the library! It's as simple as using the AccessMyLibrary Public Edition mobile app from Gale, a world-leading publisher of reference information. AccessMyLibrary uses GPS to find libraries within a 10-mile radius of your location, then gives you free, unlimited access to the reliable online resources from Gale — without the need to log in. The AccessMyLibrary Public Edition App works on iPhone®, iPod Touch®, and iPad®.
