Ever wanted to test out an app before you buy it? Looking to try a new piece of technology with your child? Check out the Youth Department App Petting Zoo!

Our petting zoo devices offer approximately 100 apps on the following 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.


Librarians have carefully selected the apps in our Technology Petting Zoo: all apps have been well-reviewed by credible, respected sources, won awards, been recommended by the West Vancouver School District or are just plain great! See the full list of librarian-recommended apps on our WVML Youth App Tumblr.
