Don't forget to use Tumblebooks this winter. The Parkland Community Library offers two separate databases of books that children and teens - and grown-ups, too - can read and listen to online. Tumblebooks offers over 200 picture books and beginning chapter books for the youngest readers. TumbleReadables concentrates on books for older readers, teens and the classics. Some offerings are audio enhanced, some are full text. This is a great resource, especially for last minute book reports!
Remember, to access Tumblebooks or TumbleReadables, readers must go through the Parkland Community Library's website. Go to the Youth Services link in the toolbar on the left hand side of the page and pick Tumblebooks from the dropdown menu. Tumblebooks is a subscription only service. The Parkland Community Library is very happy to offer these databases to Parkland residents.
