iPads - Now Available for Kids!

Tonight we unveil our latest addition to the library – iPads for kids.

These 3 new iPads are loaded with over 30 library-staff-approved apps. Be the first in the community to try these specially selected educational, imaginative and downright silly apps including: VeggieTales, Crayola Digitools, Math Bingo, Minecraft, Toca Hair Salon and many more!

These iPads are just one more way that the Stratford Public Library intends to provide a helpful, comprehensive and safe resource for children who are accessing technology. They are joining a new homework computer and our recently added bilingual early literacy computer stations.  

The Library already provides homework help in the form of links to age-appropriate, authoritative websites which have been reviewed by professional librarians, and which are available via the library website. The iPads will add to the educational value of the Library by focusing on literacy, math, animals and other education topics with a spin on imagination and fun.

SPL thanks the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport for their 2013 Capacity Building grant which supported the purchase of these iPads.
