“The library is a space where kids can learn about the world around them and begin to see possibility. I am genuinely interested in organizing a successful learning environment for children by collaborating with others to inspire, guide and build a foundation for children to become curious, active and independent lifelong learners.” – Marybeth Huff, Librarian and Media Director
Students at City Academy are immersed in a culture of reading and writing. As partners, parents and faculty work together to build this culture of literacy by modeling the behaviors of lifelong readers. In order to provide students and families rich reading material, our library boasts over 14,000 volumes. You can search these volumes in our online Library Catalog.
City Academy students and families also have access to Tumblebooks. TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Math Stories, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), Videos(from National Geographics), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books, Tumble Puzzles & Games, and TumbleResources for teachers and students. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children’s book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.
