Kids Kouch Library
In this age of television and computers a kids library membership is the best gift you can give children to help them introduce, venture and explore the ever expanding range of our book collection. Reading is a basic survival skill in today's information society. But learning to read doesn't happen in the classroom alone. In fact, the best readers are introduced to books and reading long before they enter school. KIDS KOUCH brings a unique reading experience to kids and parents alike.
Kids Kouch children library section, launched in June 2009, boosts of more than 8,000 books for children that will satisfy the reading appetite for kids of 2 through 14 years of age. Based on suggestions from experts the library has built a balanced catalog that will help every member find the right kind of books, of his age and interest. The books are cataloged and arranged categorically by our unique easy to use coding system which makes it convenient for anyone to locate books.
Our huge non-fiction collection of encyclopedias, dictionaries, knowledge books in specific topics and the complete set of Time Life Educational series will ensure that no question of your child remains unanswered.
Board books are perfect for introducing babies and young toddlers to books. These sturdy books with beautiful illustrations and large prints will nurture a love of reading. We guarantee that your young one has something new to choose every time he/she is here.
A successful picture book is one in which pictures and text work together to tell a story. Our collection contains nearly 4,000 titles. These books help to stretch a child's imagination. Old favorites like Berenstain Bears and new favorites like the Goosebumps series tempt children of all ages to pick up a book and read.
We have a large collection of Level Reader Books which are marked as per the child’s ability of reading. Beginning readers use controlled vocabulary, fewer words per page, repeated words and large print just what children need to learn to read. Children will start with Pre-Level 1 and will gradually migrate to higher levels.
Our young patrons will never fail to a find a new story book at our library. We have all the popular series like Winnie the Pooh, Disney, Barbie, Dr. Seuss etc in addition to the classical fairy tales collection. For older kids we are fully stocked with excellent series from Enid Blyton, Nancy Drew, Judy Blum to name a few.
To cater the growing demand and need for learning foreign languages and the lack of these books locally, Kids Kouch has a section for Foreign Language books. The collection is quite limited but we intend to expand it very fast. Few books are available in bilingual format, or in languages other than English. We intend to focus on French and Spanish predominantly. Bilingual board books and picture books are available for our youngest patrons. Instructional materials for learning a foreign language for young adults and adults will be introduced shortly.
