World Book Online for KIds

When I was growing up, and when my kids were young,  the World Book Encyclopedia was sold door to door. It was a huge expense to purchase a set, but  parents thought this was the best investment in their child's education. Well  parents guess what? You don't have to dish out hundreds of dollars anymore. The World Book Encyclopedia is available thru our databases and its better then ever. World Book Online for KIds as lots of colorful pages, videos, games and activities will make learning fun and exciting. And the  best part is, all you need is a library card.
