Sesame Street Ebooks
We have also added Sesame Street Ebooks in ebook, audio ebook, interactive ebook, and animated ebook format, which you can use on your home computer or on the library computers. Your child can read, listen, or play in many of the books. These books can also be accessed using an iPad; however, you cannot download them to ereaders. A word of caution—these books allow for printing, which is something you may not want your child to do, given the cost of printer ink. Also, if printing them in the library, the library charges 10 cents per page in black and white and 50 cents per page in color. To get to Sesame Street Ebooks, click on the Downloadable Books button on the left side of our home page. To access them on your home computer, you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the User ID and Password.
