Need an after-school activity or a fun resource for snow days? Visit the Adams County Public Library’s Kid Zone website. Kid Zone is a collection of links to librarian-tested, kid-approved websites that help kids practice school subjects through games, activities, and project ideas.
Kid Zone is organized by school subject, and each subject has links to sites for pre-schoolers through high school kids. Hover over the link for a short description of each site. Many of the free games and activities are the same resources offered on the popular Early Literacy computers, available in each Adams County Public Library. Find the Kid Zone at bit.ly/acplkidzone, or visit the library’s Online Catalog, and click on the Kid Zone link.
