That’s why we offer specialized services to meet the needs of elementary students such as:

      • BookFLIX by Scholastic--This interactive computer program for children ages Pre-K to Grade 3 is an excellent literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks with related nonfiction eBooks.
        It’s a fun way to engage early or reluctant readers and to reinforce reading skills.
        With a library card, anyone can access BookFLIX from anywhere with an internet connection.
