Welcome to the Kids and Tweens page!


Things to do during the school year!

Drop by any branch to find books and magazines, use our public computers, do some homework, play board games, do puzzles, or meet friends. You’ll also find board games, puzzles and more to play with in the library!

Catch up on a project. For help, drop by any location to speak to staff or take advantage of our online resources including AskNow (a cool service that connects you with librarians live online!)

Enjoy your favourite tunes on Freegal's downloadable music site.

Watch movies & tv shows, listen to music, and listen to audiobooks at Hoopla.

Have fun with TumbleBooks.

Check out GVPL's downloadable ebooks, eAudiobooks and streaming video.

Learn how to speak pirate (or any other language you want) using Mango Languages.


Borrow Books, Music, Games & More!

We have video games, graphic novels, and DVDs available, plus free downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks.  Is there something great we should buy? We welcome your suggestions for purchase.
