About the TumbleBookLibrary:
The TBL is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books
) with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books and Tumble Puzzles & Games. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.

Preschool Kids

Tot Time is at 10 am Mondays from Labor Day to Memorial Day!

We have a Preschool Outreach program.  This involves regular visits to Kids Korner and Preschool and Headstart classes. 

We also have developed theme tubs with funding from the Laurens Public Library Foundation. 

These tubs are rotated among our local daycare providers and available for all patrons to check out!

School Kids

              During the school year teachers are invited to bring their classes

for brown bag lunches, speakers and programs. 

For this school year we have six classes scheduled for monthly visits to the library.

We also do monthly Book Talks for the Middle School readers.
