Keep the kids reading all summer! Try TumbleBooks - a collection of ebooks you can use on your computer! TumbleBooks has picture books, chapter books and nonfiction books for young readers, all in a multimedia presentation with text, sound and animation. Some books even have associated games to play, and there are also language learning books and videos from National Geographic.
CloudLibrary has ebooks and audio ebooks for kids, too! From favorites like Dragons Love Tacos to classics like Ezra Jack Keats' Whistle for Willie, you can check out up to 10 ebooks and keep them for 14 days. You can also read them offline once you've downloaded them, and they turn themselves in automatically - no late fines!
