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.

Here's our first video.  The reader is Janet Buckley, M.L.S., head of technical services at Greenwood (Indiana) Public Library.  The book is Goyangi Means Cat, by Christine McDonnell; pictures by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher.

We also have a book trailer.

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