While children in today’s libraries may be new readers, they are nonetheless inquisitive and confident technology users, sometimes even more so than their parents or other adults. That’s why The Library Corporation (TLC) developed LS2 Kids – exciting new software designed for the next generation of library users.

LS2 Kids is the children’s version of TLC’s successful LS2 PAC – the same technology with new features oriented to younger library users. It’s powerful software with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that helps children find exactly what they’re looking for within a library’s collection.

LS2 Kids was developed with input from a special focus group of librarians as well as children ages 5 to 11, because young people possess a great deal of technical knowledge and unique ways of looking for materials. For instance, the home screen of the LS2 Kids interface has a scrollable display of popular book series like “Harry Potter,” “Dr. Seuss,” “Junie B. Jones,” and “The Magic School Bus.” A single click calls up every title in a selected series, beginning with the most recent publication.

Scout, the curious young pup who greets users of LS2 Kids, guides children as they search for items of interest in their school or public library. Kids can click on an icon in the category wheel that encircles Scout and select from dozens of subject areas – math and reading, of course, but also fun topics like space, baseball, gymnastics, cats, hippos, dinosaurs, scary stories, and many more. They can also type a book name or subject in the search box. If a word is typed incorrectly, no problem – LS2 Kids will offer spelling suggestions and corrections.

When children search for subjects, names, or book titles, they are treated to much more than a static list of results. LS2 Kids takes them to an interactive screen that displays a cover flow of corresponding book jackets that fill the screen and indicate whether a title is available. Clicking on any book jacket spins that title around to reveal detailed information about the publication.

LS2 Kids is simple, intuitive, and playful. Children of all ages can use this powerful, engaging software with little or no assistance, and it encourages them to explore the treasures found within their library.

LS2 Kids is the perfect companion to TLC’s Library•Solution® for Schools and Library•Solution®. If your library caters to young borrowers, check out the advantages offered by LS2 Kids by contacting TLC at 1.800.325.7759 or 304.229.0100.

TLC (TLCdelivers.com) was founded in 1974 to create technology for libraries and school districts of all sizes, including some of the busiest libraries in the world. The company has 200 staff members worldwide serving over 5,000 libraries. TLC’s library automation, authority control, cataloging, and online selection and acquisition products include Library•Solution®, Library•Solution® for Schools, CARL•X™, BiblioFile®, ITS•MARC®, LS2 PAC, and LS2 Kids – all backed by an unparalleled level of customer support and assistance.
