Holiday reading - online

A look at online resources supported by the library.


The purpose of this Smore is to share a selection of reading resources that we have available via Ding and the library. You can access most of these resources 24/7 in all locations so this is ideal for continuing with reading over the summer break.

YouTube Videos

Book Trailer and Author Talks

With supervision, this is another great way to share a love of literature is to introduce your child to authors via their own page, their publisher's page or by book trailers or read-alouds on YouTube.

For example, this one on perseverance, grit and creativity.

The Most Magnificent Thing - It teaches children to not only embrace their ideas and dreams but that if you follow through and never give up you can achieve your goals whatever they are! It even teaches them to take a break when overwhelmed or frustrated because as long as you do not quit you will eventually make your dreams come true!
