Portage County District Library has added more than 150 free Sesame Street eBooks to its digital library collection.
Available anywhere, anytime, young readers will be able to enjoy classic, as well as brand-new Sesame Street eBooks. All eBooks are based on Sesame Street's early childhood curriculum. The service includes four different kinds of eBooks: read along books, audiobooks, animated books and interactive books. When reading a Sesame Street eBook with a child, parents can make story time extra engaging with bright pages, audio narration, interactivity and animation.
To access these books, visit www.portagelibrary.org and select the "Download Ebooks Audiobooks" link at the lower left-hand position on the screen. Then select the appropriate link (inside or outside a branch library) to begin enjoying the collection.
This service is available to anyone with a Portage County District Library card in good standing.
