TumbleBooks Library & TumbleMath.  TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. TBL also includes National Geographic videos and games. TumbleMath is the most comprehensive collection of math picture books you will find anywhere. All in the amazing TumbleBook format complete with animation and narration.

Elizabeth residents who do not currently have a card, I am working with Library staff to provide card registrations remotely during this difficult time.  More information will be provided when this service has been set up.
