Great news for parents and families! In response to the nationwide closing of public and private schools, TumbleBooks and GaleCengage have offered some of their popular resources for children and families for free:
- TumbleBookLibrary: Features thousands of professionally published picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, videos, games, music and more for kids in grades K-6. The picture books in particular are loads of fun — they’ve been spruced up with simple Reading Rainbow-style animations and sound effect. If your child isn’t reading on their own yet, it will even read books out loud to them!
- TumbleMath: Math textbooks and learning resources for kids in grades K-6.
- TeenBookCloud: Middle grade and YA novels, commonly-assigned classics (including AP English selections), videos, and audiobooks for teens and preteens in grades 6-12.
- Miss Humblebee’s Academy: Provides standardized, Common Core-aligned lessons in all subjects for children ages 2-6, along with tools that allow parents to track their child’s learning and progress.
All of these sites may be accessed for free via the links above. These resources do not require a library card to access, although Miss Humblebee’s Academy requires users to set up a free account.
Remember: these are just a handful of the online resources your library offers! For more information on our FREE online services, check out our digital library page.
