The Douglas County Library recently added a new feature to our library website – Tumble Books.
TumbleBookLibrary is an online collection of TumbleBooks – animated, talking picture books that teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love.
TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books to produce an electronic picture book you can read or have read to you.
The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of licensed titles from children's book publishers such as Simon and Schuster, Chronicle Books, Candlewick Press, Charlesbridge Press, Harcourt, Little Brown, Walker and Company, Lerner Books, HarperCollins Publishers, amongst others.
The TumbleBookLibrary collection is accessed online from your home computer through a direct link on the Douglas County Library website.
The TumbleBookLibrary has a selection of children's favorite story books. Old time favorites such as The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch, as well as favorite fairy tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Old Mother Hubbard come to life in an educational and interactive way.
Other titles include Diary of a Worm, How I Became a Pirate, Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10, One Duck Stuck, and Tops and Bottoms.
Non-fiction and chapter books are also available.
A collection of puzzles and games accompany each book and reinforce concepts from the books, allowing for a fun and educational learning experience.
The annual Friends of the Douglas County Library Cookie Walk is scheduled for Saturday, December 4 from 8 a.m. to noon. The Friends are busy doing your holiday baking. Stop by the library to buy your family favorites. The proceeds of the sale go toward purchasing library materials, furnishings and programs.
