In addition to the existing, industry-leading, digital resources on-hand (our AWE Elf Workstation & Magic Desktop touchscreen workstations), the Tunkhannock Public Library will soon be offering "in-house" use of interactive Kindle tablets and iPads for children ages 2 through 8+. The devices will offer child-safe, fun-filled learning activities. No external links, no pop-ups and no advertising.
The three primary offerings will consist of the following resources:
Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is a subscription service that has been available for nearly six years, and currently offers users access to over 10,000+ TV shows, movies, and books aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 12.
