Here at the Grey Highlands Public Library we are staunch supporters of continued learning opportunities for all. Whether that be reading with others through online storytimes, developing skills with online educational resources or getting ideas for that next fun activity to do together, our library eBranch has you covered!

Our Resources

We already have a page for Kids that includes our Online Storytime, Kanopy Kids, NoveList K-8 and our newest resource, RBDigital. Note that for these sites (excluding our Online Storytime), a library card login is required. You can also go to our eResource page for some other great sites to check out, such as our new temporary subscription to Tumble Books!

Online Resources

There is a plethora of online content available to keep kids busy. We already have other pages with more online resources; our eBooks and eAudiobooks post, Genealogy post and our Mental Health post. With that being said, it is important to stay aware of Internet safety. Check out the Media Smarts and Get Cyber Safe sites to learn about good online practices.
