Media Guidelines

Media is fun and kids enjoy it. Adults do, too. But there is so much out there it's hard to keep track of and know what to do. The Library has a printable handout with general guidelines for children. Additionally, there are a couple of websites worth looking at that specifically review books, movies, and websites. Take a look at some of the links below.

Common Sense Media for help in what movies are best for your child

Parents' Choice to find award-winning books, games, and media

Great Websites for Kids has a curated lists of websites for kids by category.  This site is sponsored by the Association for Library Service to Children.
