    Online library membership facilities for children


    Want your kids to develop the reading habit during summer vacations? Check out from this Ask Expert page whether there are any online libraries available for membership for kids.

    The academic session 2016-17 is soon going to end and students will enjoy their vacation in coming two months. Books are good friends and we should develop a habit to read books. Now a days every thing is available online. So I want to know if there is any facility for membership of an online library? I have two children and I want to sign up with an online library membership for them.
    Let me know if there is a facility for such an online library membership for children.
