TumbleBooks is a great new online service for kids! TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to create an electronic picture book which kids can read, or have read to them. There are games and puzzles that reinforce concepts from the book. They can even narrate and record their own TumbleBooks to send to friends and family!


We can help with local school reading lists. Do you need to know what your child is supposed to read this summer? We can help, and we may even have an extra copy on hand!

  • These lists of books will help parents and children find good reading material appropriate for the age of the child. If you need additional assistance selecting materials, just ask the staff in the Children's Library.
