Osmo

Kids will love learning all kinds of skills with these interactive gaming and learning systems. Whether it's coding, money skills, or drawing Osmo makes learning fun!

What is Osmo?
Osmo is an interactive gaming system that encourages kids to learn via play through a combination of physical play pieces kids hold in their hands and a digital game program that reacts to what the player does in the real world.

*Ask to check out one of three available Osmo systems at the circulation desk. (Osmo systems are available for in-library use only.)
