Increasingly, our patrons are asking about downloadable ebooks and audiobooks for children. You can search our online catalog for downloadable materials, and when you connect to our partner provider - Indiana Digital Media (also known as Overdrive) – you can further limit your search to juvenile materials. These items can then be downloaded to a number of different mobile devices.
Many parents and teachers have also turned to TumbleBooks, an online collection of animated picture books and “read-along” chapter books, as another way to access ebooks for children. Available for free through the library’s website, TumbleBooks offers a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles especially for young children. (Find a link to TumbleBooks on the right side of the Children’s Services home page: mcpl.info/childrens.) Read more »
