We want your child to continue reading over the summer!

This is a great time to explore authors, genres and series that may have been overlooked during the school year. RESOURCES: PUBLIC LIBRARY, TUMBLE BOOKS, EPCC NORTHWEST LIBRARY, CANUTILLO ELEMETARY LIBRARY RESOURCES (E BOOKS ONLINE).

TumbleBooks has a brand new App! You can install it on most Apple and Android phones and tablets! Just search "TumbleBooks" in the iTunes App Store, or Google Play and then enter:

The app was designed to help students access the collection at the click of a button! All you need is an internet connection.

About the TumblePremium:
