MPL Readaloud (New Video Series)

We have a new video series for young readers called MPL Readaloud.  In these videos, one of our staff or volunteers reads a children's picture book aloud. Ideally, the reader (or, more likely, his or her caregiver) could checkout the book beforehand and follow along as s/he plays the video.

MPL Readaloud Video Playlist

We're quite excited about this new video series and hope our patrons enjoy them.

During the program, we also showed several of our Paul Hadley biographical videos (i.e., a video divided into five parts).

We also took some photos before the program.  Click the images to enlarge them.
