A new service called TumbleBooks designed particularly for young readers  is now available to patrons of the Howard County Library through EbscoHost,   Patrons can use TumbleBooks in the library or at home by clicking on the Tumblebook icon located in the banner section of the library's webpage.
TumbleBook Library is an online collection of TumbleBooks, animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they will love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books adding animation, sound , music and narration to produce an electronic picture book.  Children may choose to read the book or to listen to it while enjoying the pictures and animations.

Book News for the Month

If one cannot go to the Palace Theatre on London's West End to see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two,”  one can check out the script, based on the story by J.K. Rowling.  Of course, all the other Harry Potter books are available also.

book coverThe eagerly awaited second novel by Laura McHugh, “Arrowood” has just been released.  (Remember she discussed this book when she spoke at the Friends of the Library annual gathering last April.) bbok cover

September will be One Read month at the Daniel Boone Regional Library—many activities in Columbia, Ashland, and Fulton.  This year's winner is “Bettyville” by George Hodgman. This nonfiction book narrates the humorous but heart warming story of a successful New Yorker coming back to his Mid-Mo roots to be with his irascible mother.  The second runner up was “Hotel in the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” by Jamie Ford about life in Seattle during WWII in the Japanese community.   Both are worthy of your attention.
