ABCmouse for Libraries

The 16,000+ U.S. public libraries are a critical resource—particularly for the millions of families without a computer or high-speed Internet at home—to access information and online learning. According to the Institute of Museum and Library Services, there are more than 1.5 billion in-person public library visits and over 300 million sessions on Internet-connected computers at U.S. public libraries annually. Age of Learning offers free ABCmouse for Libraries accounts to all public libraries, providing educationally rich learning experiences for young patrons. Launched in 2014, ABCmouse for Libraries is now available in nearly 50% of all U.S. public library branches, including more than 70% of the top 50 library systems.
