Okanagan Regional Library has expanded its online offerings for young customers by subscribing to the TumbleBooks Library, which offers two products for children of all ages.

TumbleBooks are animated, talking pictures books for preschool and elementary-aged children, including fiction, non-fiction and games that can be viewed on the computer.

They also offer foreign language titles in French, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese.

Tumble Read-Alongs are chapter books for older kids with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation.

To access TumblebBooks, go to www.orl.bc.ca.
