Digital books for younger readers

Tumblebooks are e-books and e-audiobooks especially tailored for youth and young teens (grades K-6). These books are always available and often have a read-along option. They can be accessed on a computer, or through the Tumblebooks app on your Apple or Android device. Use your library card number to login after you install the app.


TumbleBookLibrary has over 1100 titles for grades K-6, and includes our unique animated, talking picture books, read-along chapter books, nonfiction books and videos, curated playlists, as well as books in Spanish and French. Plus, the collection features Graphic Novels – a student favorite!

All Tumblebooks are always available and never "checked out." However, this also means your device, whether a computer, phone or tablet, needs to be online to use the service.

Get your child started on Graphic Novels, which are popular among teens as well.

The collection includes over 100 books in Spanish and French, which is a great way to reinforce language learning.

Next Steps:

After downloading the app and opening it for the first time, enter our country (USA), state (ME), and library name (Scarborough Public Library) and then your full 14-digit library card number. The app will save this information for a long time, but you may occasionally have to re-enter this information. If your library card does not work, please contact us at askspl@scarboroughlibrary.org.
