TumbleBook Library

TumbleBook Library, provided by GALILEO and Georgia Public Library Service, is a collection of animated, talking picture books suited for elementary school children. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books, adding sound, animation, music, and narration to create an electronic picture book. In addition to electronic books, this resource also features games, read-along and non-fiction books (no animation), videos, and some books in French and Spanish. The web site is easy for children to navigate and allows children to hear stories read fluently. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.

  • To access TumbleBook Library from home you'll need the current GALILEO password, which you can obtain by calling your local Henry County Library System branch and giving them your library card number.
