New Computers: Children's Educational Games

The children’s room has five brand new touch-screen Early Literacy Station computers for kids aged 3-8, and two new touch-screen AfterSchool Edge computers for kids 8-12.

Books on MP3 CD

You can now get books on CD in MP3 format here. These audiobooks are in MP3 format but on CDs, and a whole book usually fits on one CD (sometimes on two). They will work in some newer CD players, most car CD players made since 2005, and in computers. Just look for the red cases on the end cap in the AV section upstairs, or look in the catalog for "MP3 Books."
