Get free children’s educational apps
Do you have an iPad or are you planning on purchasing one this holiday season? Attend the library program on Monday to get free children’s educational apps. We will show you how to obtain the apps and then offer some tips for using the games with your children.
Apps are for children ages 3 through 8 and provided by PBS Kids and Iowa Public Television. This is not an iPad instruction class. If you have questions about this program, call Children’s Librarian Tamie Bird at 242-8441.
