Things get a bit wilder on April 15 when kids have the opportunity to join in to see the Jungle Cat staff talk about animal behaviours and how to care for and protect the animals on our planet. A question and answer period will follow the presentation which takes place live on the library’s Facebook page.
The library has added two new CloudLibrary products for our customers: Comics Plus and News Stand. Both CloudLibrary Comics Plus and News Stand have began as separate, free apps for download on the Apple App Store or Google Play but will merge into the CloudLibrary app later this year.
Comics Plus offers unlimited, simultaneous access to over 2,000 digital comics, graphic novels and manga and News Stand features over 6,590 digital magazines, with over 2,000 multilingual titles.
If you are curious about the library’s digital collections or are looking for assistance with your device or computer, you can book a virtual tech help session via Zoom. Sessions will be offered on Tuesdays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Email [email protected] or call 905-642-7323 ext. 5234 to book your appointment.
