What is a TumbleBook Libary?
TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. TBL also includes National Geographic videos and games.  Learn More

Get Caught Reading a Banned Book
September 24-30, 2017 is Banned Books Week, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. The week highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community - librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types - in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. During the last week of September, STEAM and Story Time will focus on banned children's books as we read a few picture books from the American Library Association's frequently challenged book list. In STEAM Time, we will be experimenting with Harry Potter potions in honor of this highly challenged series of books.
