Calling All Reading Fanatics

Do you like to read? Do you like to read a wide range of books? Do you like to share your 'great reads' with others?

Then the Lincoln Public Library Book Club is for you!

If you are interested, please leave a comment on the blog. Let me know if you would prefer meeting in Beamsville or Vineland and if day or evening works best for you.


The Lincoln Public Library has just received a new online resource for young readers. TumbleReadables is an online collection of read-along titles for elementary and high school students which features adjustable online text and complete audio narration. Sentences are highlighted as they are being read and the pages turn automatically. There is also a selection of downable ebooks which be downloaded to laptops, netbooks and desktops and, in a few months, to Android phones and tablets.

Check the library's website in the Databases section to find these great online books for children and teens.
