Be App Happy with The Supper Club
Discover great apps for kids at The Supper Club, an evening digital family storytime.
Librarians have been giving advice about how to make choices in the media market forever. Books, music, movies...and now, apps! The options can be very overwhelming and confusing with so many apps making educational claims.
The Supper Club is one of many ways you can learn more about using apps with kids. Pack a picnic from home or have dinner delivered to the library.
Upcoming events include:
Monroe Street Library | Friday, January 19 | 6:00pm
Pinney Library | Tuesday April 3 | 6:00pm
Central Library | Thursday, May 3 | 6:00pm
Learn more about the Supper Club and other helpful app resources.

Apps can spark a conversation! When you ask your child questions about what they see on the screen, this can help build your child’s vocabulary and narrative skills--both important building blocks that will give them a boost when learning to read.
