TCPL wants to help our community to listen, learn and grow during these challenging times. We hope these booklists are helpful in your personal education and discussions about anti-racism and add some enjoyment with books celebrating the rich and full lives of African Americans.
Until August 31st, TCPL patrons can access a free trial of TumbleMath. Similar to our TumbleBooks, these resources are math based for kids Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Dear Library Community,
First, we miss you and hope this letter finds you safe and well.
As New York begins the reopening process, we are looking forward to seeing you all again, and sharing physical library materials and programs as well as electronic and virtual resources. Why, then, did we make the decision for Tompkins County Public Library to remain fully closed through June 30?
Looking for something good to read, watch, or listen to? TCPL staff has recommendations for you! Many of the following are available to download or stream, and we've noted where you can find them online. Happy exploring!
If you have any questions about the following titles, just Ask a Librarian!
We know you have all missed TCPL's storytimes and staff and we have missed you all terribly too! We are thrilled to begin rolling out virtual storytimes. Keep an eye out for others as we are able to produce them. We'll be offering them online through our social media & here on our website.
In response to public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Tompkins County Public Library has taken precautions that may help limit the spread of the virus in accordance with recommended practices. TCPL continues to offer access to books, public computers, Wi-Fi, reference services, and a variety of resources and computers dedicated to the 2020 US Census.
Comment: I am wishing for free books and a vending machine at the library.
Response: Thank you for sharing your library wishes with us. Did you know that when you participate in our summer reading program, you can choose a free book to keep? And we hope you enjoy borrowing all the books you can enjoy for free all year long. Did you know there are snack, movie, and even book vending machines? We will put these ideas on our wish list too.
