Look for LeapPads @ the Library

The Ridgefield Library has introduced a new way to amuse and educate our younger patrons! Thanks to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library, a number of LeapPad2 handheld computers have been purchased and may be borrowed from the Children’s Services desk for an hour at time. Children ages 3 to 9 will enjoy exploring all they have to offer, from taking baby’s photo with the camera feature to listening to the educational music. Young budding artists may dabble with the art studio or create their own pet with the PetPad. And, yes, we did manage to make sure there was a fun game to play as well! The LeapFrog company takes pride in producing educational toys with kid-proof durability. In the future, we will be buying some additional cartridges to enhance the enjoyment and educational value.

If you haven’t been able to visit the Lodewick Children’s Library yet, we would like you to know that it also has a wonderful selection of puzzles, blocks and wooden toys on wheels (like a giraffe and a fire truck), encouraging learning and creativity through tactile as well as digital tools. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon!
