A new year and new Autism Tools to explore! In 2017, we partnered with Autism Nova Scotia to launch three different Autism Tools kits: Sensory Tools, Visual Tools, and Fidget Tools. This year we are introducing you to our newest kit: Communication Tools. We collaborated with Autism Nova Scotia to create a kit that offers samples of communication tools for you to explore. This kit is a great way to discover which tools work best for you.
Each month, your Library hosts a wide variety of special programs. You can download our monthly program listings here, as they become available. We'll keep this post up-to-date with the latest booklets so you can know what's on the go, while you're on the go.
We know keeping up with all the free online tools your Library offers can be hard. This is where Niche Academy can save the day. With Niche Academy's video tutorials, you can learn how to use Ancestry Library Edition, Chilton, Consumer Reports, Hoopla, Lynda.com, Novelist, OverDrive, Libby, PressReader, RBdigital, Rocket Languages, and TumbleBooks. Niche Academy also provides tutorials for popular websites like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Gmail.
