LOTE is our newest online resource, offering digital picture books for kids read out loud in more than 40 languages!

How do you log in? Click this link or visit our website under E-Library > eBooks & eAudiobooks. If you're at home, enter your Library card number to get started. Inside the Library? No card needed! 

While you won't find titles by popular authors in this collection, you will find some great stories in languages like Spanish, Arabic, Gujarati, Japanese and French. Just pick the language you'd like — each book also includes an English translation to help develop multilingual reading and listening skills.

You will need an internet connection; the books cannot be downloaded to your device. But you can watch and read as many as you like, as often as you'd like. There are no limits there!
