Join Teton County Library in celebrating our 75th year as a public library! Our official birthday is in January, but we’ll keep the revelry going all year round, with monthly themes that spotlight and celebrate what the library and community offer to one another.
Below, find fun online resources and books to explore based on this month’s theme. Enjoy!
WonderpolisThis website captures the spirit of the child, always curious, always wondering. Does matter really matter? How do pets find home? Why don’t spiders get caught in their website? These are just a few of the intriguing questions explored.
Reading is FundamentalAn early literacy website “where young children discover the world of reading and grownups enjoy the journey.” Young children can read, sing, play, and explore a variety of subjects and books. Also in Spanish.
We Give BooksThis website, created by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation, combines the promotion of literacy and the concept of giving. It enables children to read a book online and after doing so, a physical book will be donated to a child in need through literacy programs around the world.
