Downloadable ebooks, audiobooks and Read Along books can be found on Hoopla, Cloud Library, Overdrive/Libby, and Kanopy Kids. On our SLOCountyLibraries YouTube channel families can find storytimes, crafts to do at home and other entertainment. Also on our website is ABC Mouse which has learning games and activities for children ages 2 to 6 

The library is now offering grab n go crafts for pre-schoolers.   Everything your young one needs is in a baggie that can be taken home and worked on to create a fun craft project. Grab n Go crafts for March is Plains Indians Parfleche.
