The library is a great place to study, catch up on the news, browse the Internet, and read for fun. But what do you do when you have a crew of littles in tow - and the book/newspaper/study space you want is in the adult department?
You keep them occupied with a PBS Kids Tablet! The PBS Kids Tablets allow children to watch live streams of PBS TV shows, play pre-loaded games, and experiment with basic coding. All content is both fun and educational. We have 5 of these kid friendly tablets available for checkout for in-library use. They can be used anywhere in the library, making them the perfect choice to keep the kids entertained when you need to bring them along with you to the Study Room or newspaper section. They're also a great option for times when all the children's computers are booked.
The Children's Department also has a Code-A-Pillar available for use in the library. Kids get to practice thinking directionally, problem solving, and simple coding by setting up obstacle courses and programming the Pillar to move through the course without bumping into anything.
Talk to a children's librarian if you would like to sign up to use one of these devices!
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in an easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
