Elf Child Safe Browser

Elf Child-Safe Browser which provides 100% safe Internet use for your child, conveniently in your home.

The Elf browser allows your children to safely explore carefully chosen, highly engaging free-use educational resources on the Internet. Your children can work on their own and you can feel comfortable knowing that they are visiting ONLY sites that are wholesome, educational, and fun.

This is ALWAYS accomplished because Elf checks every piece of content before it is displayed to ensure that the material is coming from a site that has been specifically approved them.

Elf maintains these high quality links in the areas of math, science, geography, reading, music, arts, writing and reference. Children have a chance to vote for their favourite sites within the Elf browser and these “Top Links” are listed on the main page. In addition to the educational content, there is a fun/riddle area filled with safe activities for all ages of children.

For more information about this new service, please contact us 613-342-3936. In order to obtain a copy of Elf, please email us at info@brockvillelibrary.ca. We will need your first and last name, library card # and your email address. We will then send you the file to install Elf browser on your computer as well as supporting documentation.
