TumbleBooks for Children

Kids love animated, talking picture books, which teach the joy of reading.  TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which the parent can read to the child, or the child can have read to them via an audio soundtrack. The site also offers word searches and other puzzles and games.Some titles are available in Spanish and others in French.

Library Makeover

The Library recently completed an extensive “makeover” of this building. The makeover included preservation and restoration of original interior finishes; installation of more appropriate lighting, furniture and floor coverings; elevator improvements; and electrical and fire alarm upgrades.
