  • What makes a good children’s book?
  • What makes a good children’s app?

GRANDPARENTS: 

Visit Us! We like nothing better than to see grandparents and grandchildren enjoying our Children’s Room and Makerspace together; and we’re more than happy to talk with you about good children’s books!


Are your grandkids coming to visit?  Are you traveling to visit them? 

GrandKits: 
Contact us, tell us about your grandkids, and we’ll gather up a selection of books and media (DVDs, Books on CD, plus perhaps even a puzzle, game or STEM kit) put them in a GrandKits bookbag, and have the bag ready for you to borrow.  

Museum Passes: Plan ahead and book passes to local museums.  

Visit us! Before your grandkids visit, schedule a time to learn how to put some good children’s apps on your tablet or smartphone.
