Raising Readers iPads

All Capital Area District Libraries have at least one Raising Readers iPad ready to use while in the library. They are pre-loaded with carefully selected apps geared for children ages 3-8. The apps are selected for their age appropriateness and educational quality and are organized around the five early literacy practices: Read, Write, Sing, Talk, and Play. 

Adults love the apps for their educational value, but kids love them because of the fun activities they can do. As we learn about notable new apps, we periodically update our Early Literacy iPad app offerings. Visit your local branch to play with your child today.
