The library is excited to bring you two new resources, free to access online with your library card. 

Newspaper Archives is a database of newspapers from all over the world from 1607 to present.  This resource will help you in your genealogy research, as it provides access to over 108 million obituaries; marriage, birth, death, arrest, and divorce records; murder cases; old photographs; family history; and so much more! 

To access this database, navigate to our homepage at CRCPL.org and click on the Newspaper Archives logo.  You’ll need to set up an account with an email address to obtain access.  Try it out today.  You’ll be surprised at what you find!

For the little ones, CRCPL has launched ABCmouse at-home access.  Kids who visit our libraries will be familiar with ABCmouse since it is on all of our children’s computers.  Now, Age of Learning has made their popular product available to library patrons in their own homes. 

The award-winning ABCmouse curriculum is designed to help young children (ages 2-8+) build a strong foundation for future academic success. ABCmouse is 100 percent educational, with more than 10,000 learning activities (books, puzzles, educational games, art activities, songs, etc.) across all major subject areas: reading, math, science, social studies, art, and music.

Click here to visit ABCmouse.  You’ll need to enter an email address to get started.  An ABCmouse app is also available for iPhone and Android.
