Great Websites for Kids

The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, maintains the following website called “Great Websites for Kids” (greatsites.ala.org).

It is an online resource containing hundreds of links to exceptional websites for children. 

Great Websites for Kids is a compilation of exemplary websites geared to children from birth to age 14. Suggested sites are evaluated by the Great Websites for Kids Committee using established selection criteria. The committee is made up of members of the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.

Newly evaluated and accepted sites are added to the database three times a year. The committee also reviews all sites within the database twice a year to guarantee sites are still relevant, appropriate and accessible.
