Six Digital Resources for Your Little Book Lover

Have a kid who can’t get enough of books? We’re always happy to see you at the Library, but you can also try these six Digital Library resources to keep reading during Spring Break:  

Interact with stories with BookFlix  

Early learners can watch animated read-along videos of books and then do fun puzzles and games to practise their reading comprehension. Search through the collection using your favourite topics to find new titles. 

Read in your home language with LOTE4Kids 

LOTE4Kids has on-demand titles to read in over 50 different languages, including sign language. This is a great resource for kids and older caregivers to bond over if you have multiple generations and languages spoken in your home  

eReading room in Libby for Kids  

Great for long drives, Libby is one stop for eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines. Find an audiobook everyone wants to listen to, load some magazines to flip through on the tablet before you leave, or enjoy having thousands of your favourite picture books all on one device.  

Find the book that got away on NoveList K – 8 

Remember that book you read last year that your kids loved? It was about a chicken and a frog and the cover was blue? NoveList is the resource for you. Type in details of a story and find the book you’re thinking of, as well as read-alikes that you and your kids might enjoy. You can also search for new titles by mood, character, pacing, and more.  

Books come to life with TumbleBook Library 

Early learners can have stories read to them and school-age children can find read-alongs and play games to test their reading skills. This resource includes French and Spanish language learning titles and digital graphic novels, too. 

Keep track of your March Break reads in Beanstack  

Track your reading in Beanstack and get weekly email updates of titles you might enjoy based on your previous reads. This is the app the Library uses to track reading during Ultimate Summer Challenge, so it’s the perfect time to create an account.
