Songs for the Whole Family

Being able to break down words into smaller sounds is one of the biggest benefits of singing as it will help children sound out words into smaller parts when they get ready to read independently.

We often spend a lot of time in our cars. Take advantage of this time to listen to some fun songs that the whole family can sing! The Library has many CDs to check out. You even want to try one of our favorites from storytime such as Laurie Berkner.

Jump for Jazz

Digital literacy is the ability to understand, evaluate, and use information when it is presented by a computer, tablet, or other digital media. With so much technology present in our daily lives, we want to provide information to help you navigate the world of technology with your child.

If your child just loves music, check out the Channel 11 www.pbs.org website. On their music games page at http://pbskids.org/games/music/, you’ll find over a dozen music-themed child-appropriate online games.  You can connect this experience to books by checking out a fun music title such as Jazzmatazz.  There are also fun, education apps you can download or use at the library such as Jazzy Day.
