BRISTOL, VA — The Library of Virginia has purchased the TumbleBookLibrary for use by Virginia's public libraries.

The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks, 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.

The TumbleBookLibrary collection can be accessed online from every computer in the Bristol Public Library with an Internet connection, or from home through a direct link on the library's web site at www.bristol-library.org.

The TumbleBookLibrary includes a wide selection of stories that come to life for children through engaging animation.

Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.
