Have you ever wanted your own Unicorn? 

Before you go out and get one,  listen to Tia and "Sprinkles," the library unicorn, tell you why you might be getting more than you bargained for in Ame Dyckman's "You Don't Want a Unicorn" published by Little, Brown & Co. 

If you're still determined to have your own unicorn, you'll need to know how to catch it!  Enjoy as Tia and Sprinkles read Adam Wallace & Andy Elkerton's "How to Catch a Unicorn" published by Sourcebooks/Jabberwocky.

In the meantime, drop by  the Elbert County Library and pick up a Unicorn craft at the circulation desk to take home and make!

E-READ KIDS!

CHILDREN'S E-BOOKS AND E-AUDIO BOOKS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE LIBRARY !

Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) is proud to launch eRead Kids, a new digital library available through all 407 public libraries in the state. The collection of almost 15,000 electronic and audio books is for children from pre-k through fourth grade.  

The collection is a mix of fiction and non-fiction ebook and audio book titles that can be downloaded onto computers, tablets and smartphones. 

All Georgia families now can freely check out electronic books for their devices, encouraging the early reading that is so important to educational success.

GPLS has worked with children’s librarians across the state to select titles and identify the most advantageous offerings and pricing. eRead Kids is made possible by funding proposed by Gov. Brian Kemp and approved by the Georgia General Assembly. 

To access eRead Kids, you simply need your Georgia public library card and go to http://elbertga.axis360.baker-taylor.com or visit the Elbert County Library to learn more.
