You may have noticed a new image on our Kids’ Brain page. Clicking on this takes you to a special “reading room” that features items for juvenile and young teen readers. When kids search this collection, the results are mostly limited to eBooks and eAudiobooks that are published for readers through sixth grade- similar to being in the children’s area of the physical library.
All titles in the eReading Room are also cataloged by reading level and interest level to help in selecting the title that is best for each reader. For example, using the refine level search option, you can limit the search to reading level -grade 4 and interest level -middle grades (MG 4-8) and get a list of junior fiction titles.
You can also browse by subject, collections and levels as well as use the advance search mode to narrow your specific search. Both fiction and nonfiction are included in our digital collection.
As with all eBooks in our full collection, titles can be sampled in OverDrive Read prior to borrowing or placing a hold.
Clicking on the OverDrive Kids icon from our digital materials page, will also take you to the Kids eReading room. When you click on it you get to the main page with recently added eBooks for kids shown below.
Download books with a Plano Public Library card whenever you want to read- even when the library is closed! And since the titles are automatically returned on the due date- you won’t have any late fees!
