Grolier's Amazing Animals

Children are often fascinated with the animal world and animal reports are often one of the school projects that they really love doing. It seems like the library can never have enough animal books to satisfy the curiosity of children of all ages. So, when you've already checked out all of the books about a certain animal and are craving even more information, try heading to Grolier's Amazing Animals database online. The library has purchased a subscription to this database so that our curious patrons can find articles, pictures, websites, videos and more solid information on animal topics - at any hour of the day, from virtually anywhere in the world. All you will need is your Corvallis-Benton County Public Library card with you. Once you login to this database, you can search for information by category (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, anthropods, and other invertebrates) or try the fun features such as Habitats or Jungle Jumble or Feature Creature (my personal favorite!). Learn interesting facts, play learning games, or watch fascinating short kid-friendly documentaries. This is a great resource for older children doing homework. But it also contains information, videos and images that younger children will enjoy. Give it a try by clicking here.
