Sites for Kids
The links listed below are to websites that have been selected as appropriate for children. However, since the Internet is constantly changing what is appropriate today may be inappropriate tomorrow. While the library regularly checks these links it cannot guarantee that they will still be suitable in the future.Bensguide
Ben's Guide to U.S. Government for Kids is a service of the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). The site provides learning tools for K-12 students, parents, and teachers. The resources will teach how our government works, the use of the primary source materials of GPO Access, and how one can use GPO Access to carry out their civic responsibilities. And, just as GPO Access provides locator services to U.S. Government sites, Ben's Guide provides a similar service to U.S. Government Web sites developed for kids.
