[ARCHIVED] New technology available to checkout at West Fargo Library

New Technology available for checkout

The West Fargo Public Library recently added new items available for checkout with a library card.   

Ozobots, a popular item at library STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) events in the past, are now available to check out. These bots help kids practice simple coding by signaling the bot to perform specific movements through color patterns. 

The library also now has additional LaunchPad learning tablets available to check out. These tablets come preloaded with educational games and puzzles. Funded through a North Dakota State Library grant, the library was able to expand its collection of LaunchPads to include versions for youth, teens, and adults. Adult LaunchPads range in topics from English language learning to entertaining puzzle games.  

The library also added a puzzle exchange in the spring. Dozens of puzzles are available for the public to take home and enjoy. Upon completion, patrons are encouraged to return the puzzle for someone else to use. Members of the public can donate puzzles at the library service desk to be added to the puzzle exchange collection. A library card is not necessary to participate in the puzzle exchange.   

Other non-traditional items available for checkout at the West Fargo Library include Wi-Fi hotspots, VoxBooks (which have a built-in speaker that reads aloud for a child to follow along), state park passes, and more.
