New electronic resources at the library

The Los Angeles Public Library has lots of new and exciting electronic resources. Click here to check them out.

One of the exciting features is the ability to download podcasts of book readings by leading children's authors. Parents and kids can download these for free to their favorite PDA or PC.

Podcasts include biographical information about each author followed by the author's reading from his or her book, inspiring children to check the book out from the library and enjoy reading it at home.

Best-selling children's authors currently available on podcast through the library's website include Gretchen Woelfle, Karen Jo Shapiro, and Iza Trapani.
