eBooks by Local Authors!

In 2013 we launched an ebook making program! Children entering grades 1-3 were paired with teen volunteers. Over the course of two afternoons, the kids, with the help of the volunteens, wrote and illustrated original ebooks using iPads loaded with creative apps. The ebooks were then loaded onto our website and made available for download, on a variety of devices. Check out and download any of the titles yourself!
