Elgin County Library is pleased to announce the launch of two new collections: Yoto Bundles and Yoto Cards. The purpose of this pilot project is to bring a new and exciting screen-free smart audio player, the Yoto Player, to young children to engage them in reading in an audiobook format.
Introducing CBC Corner
CBC Corner - Discover the best Canadian shows, stories & more
Elgin County Library is very happy to announce that we’ve added a new digital resource to our website! Developed especially for public libraries, CBC Corner is a digital portal that brings CBC’s audio, video and news content together in one place for a more streamlined experience.
Have a few minutes? Not sure what you are looking for or just want to browse around? With trusted news, local stories and radio shows, entertaining TV shows, documentaries, movies, award-winning podcasts, latest sports news and special reports, and much more, CBC Corner has something for everyone and every taste!
Do you have children? CBC Corner has tons of safe, educational and entertaining content for children and youth of all ages including tv shows, free online games, fun quizzes and activities as well as news articles made by kids for kids. As a parent, you will also find cool and simple crafts ideas, healthy recipes, and easy ways to learn through play!
Interested in other languages? CBC Corner offers, through the daily multilingual service RCI, news in five of the most commonly spoken foreign languages in Canada (Mandarin, Punjabi, Tagalog, Arabic, Spanish).
CBC Corner is also a very valuable resource for those looking to learn or refine their French, or even their English skills, through our free Canadian language learning app, Mauril! And if you’re looking for French content, CBC Corner also allows you to explore all of this en français with audio, video and news from Radio-Canada!
