Our Library has a subscription to TumbleBookLibrary, and your family can access it from home! It’s unlimited, and it’s FREE for you to use!
TumbleBook Library, provided by GALILEO and Georgia Public Library Service, is a collection of animated, talking picture books suited for elementary school children. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books, adding sound, animation, music, and narration to create an electronic picture book.
In addition to electronic books, this resource also features games, read-along and non-fiction books (no animation), videos, and some books in French and Spanish. The web site is easy for children to navigate and allows children to hear stories read fluently. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension. TumbleBooks use Flash, but they are viewable on the iPad with the exception of some of the games.
Accessing TumbleBooks is easy! If you are at home, you will need the library’s current GALILEO password. If you don’t know the password, call any of our open libraries, just make sure you have your library card number handy so we can verify that you are our patron! The password expires every four months.
If you are in the library, or using our WiFi, you won’t need the password. Either way, to get started just click the link below!
