Borrow a Kindle

If you don't have your own e-reader, you can borrow one of our youth kindles. They come pre-loaded with dozens of popular titles by authors like Suzanne Collins, Robert Muchamore, Cassandra Clare, James Dashner and many, many more. Best of all, you get access to tons of titiles, but it only counts as one item on your library card! You can borrow Kindles for 21 days.

Come see a librarian at the Youth Department Information Desk to check one out.

TECHNOLOGY PETTING ZOO: TRY A TABLET!

We know you can try out different tablets and apps at stores, but the library is the place to play with apps to your heart's content – we have almost 100 apps downloaded and ready for you to try on these devices:

  • iPads (2)
  • iPod Touch
  • Kobo Arc
  • Nexus 7
  • Nabi Tab

Just like a real petting zoo, you can have fun with the devices in the library, but they cannot be taken home.

The technology petting zoo is perfect if:

  • you're looking to try out a new app before you buy it (don't waste that iTunes gift card on a crummy app!)
  • you like to experiment and play with different apps
  • you're doing homework in the library
  • We have super useful apps like The Chemical Touch (full periodic table of elements), Quick Graph (in case you forget your graphing calculator at home!) and Frog Dissection (it's amazing and gross and totally accurate)
  • all of our library computers are in use

GO APE FOR APPS!

Librarians don't just love books – we love apps too! In addition to being fun, there are lots of apps that can help you with your homework and boost your study skills. We've chosen all of our favourites and put them on our technology petting zoo devices and raved about them here.
