New databases focus on military history and children’s education

Fold3, ABC Mouse new to EPL digital library

Most people know who in their family lineage has served their country but how many have actually seen their ancestors’ draft card or other paperwork?

Fold3, a new digital resource available both from outside or inside EPL locations using our Digital Library allows users to search for documents, records, photos and more.

There are records for wars as far back as the U.S. Revolution and many wars include foreign military documents as well.

Individual names can be searched for or just browse through records and press clippings from major events and battles.

ABC Mouse available

Children can play educational games on ABC Mouse, now available at EPL locations and from anywhere.

Computers in the children’s areas at EPL locations should now have a direct link to ABC Mouse or from the Digital Library which has games, lessons, books and more.

ABC Mouse has activities for children from ages 2 to 8.

Additionally, ABC Mouse can be accessed from an Android or iPhone app.
