Stories to Go These are a great way for kids to get a curated selection of books on a single topic. Each bag comes with approximately ten picture books on a topic (some bags also include a DVD).
Parent Shelf We have a special shelf just for parenting books in the kids room at the Downtown library. For now, browse it online!
Downloadable Books AADL doesn't just have stuff to stop in, pick up, and borrow: we've also got stuff you can download right to your home computer and keep as long as you want! Just log in with your AADL library card, download, and you're off!
