New Teen and Kids Free eReading Sites

Introduce your kids and teens to the friendly digital library experience provided by the Public Libraries In Jefferson County. The Public Libraries In Jefferson County has expanded its digital reading and listening services with two new digital collection websites, one just for kids and one just for teens. The main digital collection, http://downloadable.jclc.org, now has separate sites to provide safe and easy browsing experiences for kids and teens. These pages can be found at http://downloadable.jclc.org/kids or http://downloadable.jclc.org/teens.

The Public Libraries in Jefferson County recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids and teens to browse library materials. Just as the children’s and teens sections of a physical library are sectioned off, the same experience is now available on the county’s digital collection. These appealing and user-friendly pages contain eBooks and eAudiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level.

The Kids and Teen collection sites filter the overall digital collection to just show children or teen content, which gets kids and teens to the titles they want faster! These new services, powered by OverDrive, are free for users with a library card. Digital titles are available anytime, anywhere, and expire automatically, so no need to worry about late fees.
