Parenting in today’s world of growing technology can be intimidating and scary for some families. The ICL does our best to use our available resources and technology to help guide parents on a path of educational fun and family bonding while keeping our young patrons safe.
Our website, ignaciolibrary.org, has multiple links and resource options not just for adults, but children too! A great one to highlight, and just in time before school starts, is our Scholastic Links – ScienceFlix and Watch and Learn Library. These work to inspire and engage your child to build their vocabulary, practice hands on topics, develop inquiry-based learning skills and more. Again, just visit our website to gain access to both of those learning resources, all you’ll need is your library card number and it’s free!
Something enjoyable about the last two resources is they can be done in the comfort of your home on your computer or other devices, but if you’re concerned about going through your data or having a slow connection, we’ve got you covered there too! We offer mobile Hot Spots for checkout, giving you access to free wifi and peace of mind that your family can access what they need at ease. Each hotspot can handle up to 10 devices connected to it at a time and are available for one-week checkouts.
Another new device that can make learning fun for your family are our Leap Pads. They use interactive games and activities to teach phonics, the alphabet, math, rhyming and more. Leap Pads can not only provide entertainment while learning but a safe devices so you know your child has access to only age-appropriate content.
