The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library is tumbling with joy to announce that its Kids Place page at toledolibrary.org is the place to go if your young person loves books. Kids Place offers exciting ways for youngsters to interact with books, and it’s all free!

Take TumbleBooks ™, an online collection of e-books to watch, hear and read plus play puzzles and games based on selected Tumble titles.

There’s also BookFLIX, where kids can watch and read along to a video storybook from Weston Woods (creates audiovisual adaptations of children’s picture books).
