I need some information on Tumblebooks and so far my library isn't responding to emails and my mom didn't understand was I wanted her to ask. Tumble books is a collection of downloadable ebooks for kids that I want to use in my UAE kindergarten. Both US libraries I use have access, but I need to know what the username and passwords are. Is it the name of the library? The initials of the library? Some other username? Is the password my card number my library password or is it something else that should be obvious, but so far isn't?

I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this. Getting a decent supply of English language picture books here is very difficult and expensive and oh so useful for the kids. I read them a story in English only the other day and when my co-teacher asked them in Arabic what happened they knew the story even though their grasp of English is still slippery at best.

I had a nosey around, and it was incredibly simple. I went to my library homepage, found the link to Tumblebooks, and was directed straight to the Tumblebooks site. Then I just clicked on Storybooks, then "View Online". No login necessary.

Weird.

It's the same with my library, no login necessary.

Thanks so much! My library asks for a password, but my mother's library link didn't. I wouldn't have minded paying for access, but at $500 a year it's a little steep.
