Your Library: The Perfect Vacation Tool

Wherever you plan to travel this summer, Massillon Public Library is the perfect take-along for both adults and children! In addition to taking your favorite books with you on an extended vacation loan, your library offers countless hours of electronic vacation enjoyment via our online services.

TumbleBooks, a free online collection of read-along, animated books for children, provides hours of enjoyment and interactive reading. Hundreds of titles are available, including picture books with animation and music, early readers with highlighted text so children can follow along, fun puzzles and games--even chapter books!

For the long drive, rainy days, or hot nights, hoopla is available free from your library’s website. Hoopla is a digital media service to which the library subscribes, enabling you to borrow movies, television shows, educational/instructional videos, documentaries, and music via browser, smartphone or tablet (iOS 6 and select Android devices). Whatever you enjoy watching or listening to, there is sure to be something available for you on hoopla, with no ads or commercials while viewing or listening to content.

For everyone in the family, Massillon Public Library provides access to the free Ohio Digital Library. This allows you to access eBooks, audiobooks, music and video from a collection of more than 19,000 individual titles from anywhere, 24/7. eBooks in the collection are downloadable in a variety of formats for a number of different devices.

So when you are making your vacation list, don’t forget the sunscreen AND your Massillon Public Library card
