A project of the Ramapo Catskill Library System of Middletown, New York, KidsClick! was created as "a logical step in addressing concerns about the role of public libraries in guiding their young users to valuable and age appropriate web sites." Kids can browse the database of sites by a wide range of subjects (which are actually organized by the Dewey Decimal System), such as the environment, natural disasters, space, geography, geology, physics, and many more. Each listing contains a description of the site, if it contains illustrations, its suggested reading level, and its primary category, as well as a direct link. The sites can also be searched by keyword, subject, title, description, reading level, picture content, and URL. In addition to all of the helpful resources for students, educators are also offered links to related lesson plans for download.
