MORRISTOWN, NJ - Did you know you could access digital children's story books, read along eBooks, videos, games and more from your local and county library?
Library users will use their library card number to access TumbleBooks by visiting a participating library’s website or visiting http://bit.ly/maintumblebooks
Emily Weisenstein, Head of Youth Services at Madison Public Library co‐chairs the MAIN Youth Services Committee and is a proponent of TumbleBooks. “It is a fantastic resource for our patrons,” stated Weisenstein. “They offer a wide range of juvenile eBooks that children can access at anytime, anywhere – all they need is an Internet connection and a library card. I especially like their selection of interactive picture books, which allows children to read along with some of their favorite titles. It's fun, easy to use, and popular."
To help grant access, teachers are now eligible for a public library card this year. K-12 teachers can register for a full service library card in the town in which they teach if they do not already reside in the MAIN public libraries service area.
“The MAIN member libraries felt it important to help support the efforts of teachers and school libraries by not just offering a limited courtesy library card to teachers, but a full access one.” said Phillip Berg, MAIN Executive Director, “Educating our young people is an important endeavor which (public libraries) can and should help as members of the greater local community."
