Boy eBooks and girl eBooks?

I know that boys are different to girls but I prefer not to generalize. I personally bit the head off my sister’s Barbie and had a farm set. So not all girls like pink and are sweet and not all boys are trouble and like noise! Regardless of what your personality is like there are eBooks and downloadable audiobooks to suit all tastes on OverDrive. I have added some images of new OverDrive titles for you below –  lines of eBooks aimed at girls,  lines aimed at boys and then lines for those who  feel neither blue nor pink! See if you can pick which line belongs to whom!

Snake attack!

Free online fun at the library these holidays

Now that you are free from school what plans do you have for the summer holidays that stretch before you? (I am so jealous!) I have a few suggestions that you may want to try if you start to get a bit bored. They are free, enjoyable and all for you!

  • BusyThings: Fun games and activities for 3 to 7 year olds that include creating music and art.
  • TumbleBook Library: Animated books which include games, quizzes, videos and puzzles.
  • Literacy Planet: Create characters and earn rewards in return for completing fun tasks.
  • OverDrive: Over 1200 children’s fiction and non fiction e-books and downloadable audiobooks for your enjoyment!

Far be it from us to encourage you to play online more, but there will be wet days when playing outside will not be an option. This is where we can help. All you need to access any of these online resources is an imagination and a  library card number and password / PIN.

Oh and don’t forget to come and visit us  at your local library this summer!
