CLARK, NJ - The Clark Public Library has expanded its resources for children from Pre-K through 8th grade with the addition of the StarWalk Kids Media Digital Streaming Collection. The collection, with over 500 titles from respected children’s authors, is in a digital eBook format that works with almost all electronic devices. The library purchased the materials with funds received through the Union County Freeholders 2015 Library Grant for children’s programming and materials.
Both fiction and non-fiction eBooks are available from such well-known authors and illustrators as David Adler, Jim Arnosky, Johanna Hurwitz, Pat Mora, Laura Vaccaro Seeger and Jane Yolen. The books are professionally narrated by actors and include additional features that complement the titles’ use in libraries, classrooms and at home.
StarWalk Kids Media will exponentially grow the digital and eBook reading opportunities for the children of Clark, Library Director Dawn Jenkin said in a release.
