Preloaded Nook® HDs for kids available for check out

Any time is a great time to introduce a new way of enjoying books to your kids — our preloaded Nook® HDs allow kids to enjoy old and new favorites in a safe and age appropriate manner. Both the Pinedale and Big Piney libraries have Nook HDs preloaded with dozens of ebooks for preschoolers (most with a "read to me" option), for early readers, and for 3rd graders and up. All Nook HDs come with parental controls and do not access the Internet or games — they are just for reading. Just power up and go! Nook HDs check out for 3 weeks.


Coming up

Reading to preschoolers is beneficial for their brain development and academic success. It is correlated with improved attention spans and better concentration. Early reading also ignites the child's creativity and imagination, teaches them sight words and expands vocabulary. Kids earn a sticker for every 25 books read and their photo taken for every 100 books read. Pick up a 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten folder today and foster a lifelong love of reading.

Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning

Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
