Students at Madison Elementary School all have a Kuno tablet as part of the school’s Digital Learning Initiative. Here is how to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the Madison Library that will work on a Kuno:
You will need to be connected to wireless internet to access these resources. Madison Library offers a wireless connection, and we can help you connect a Kuno to our wireless.
TumbleBooks: Select your Kuno’s “My Internet” option. Go to the Madison Library homepage, (www.madison.lib.nh.us) tap on the TumbleBooks icon in left column. If a pop-up asks you to go to the mobile version of TumbleBooks, say yes. If you are asked to login with a username and password, please contact us, and we’ll let you know what they are.
About TumbleBooks: TumbleBooks are animated ebooks specifically for children, and you can use the Tumblesearch option to search for books by by grade or lexile level. TumbleBooks also offers puzzles and games, and short videos from National Geographic. If you have a student interested in learning another language, there are a number of books in French and Spanish, select the “Language Learning” button to find these.
NH Downloadable Books: You will need a Madison Library account (library card) to use this service. From your Kuno’s “My E-Books” option, select the Overdrive Media Console app. The first time you use the Kuno with Overdrive Media Console, you will be asked to authorize with an Adobe ID. Follow the instructions to sign up for and enter your Adobe ID (the video link below gives details on how to do this). You only need to authorize the app with an Adobe ID once. Due to Kuno’s internet filtering, you may have to sign up for an Adobe ID on another computer. We can help you with this at the Madison Library.
For instructions on how to download audiobooks and ebooks: watch this video on using OverDrive Media Console on an Android device.
Note for parents: The best way to find audiobooks and ebooks for kids in NH Downloadable Books is to choose an option listed under “Kids eBooks & Audiobooks” but, the classification of titles that appear here is imperfect at best. Particularly with the graphic novels (and especially with the manhwa and manga), some of the content is more appropriate for mature readers.
About NH Downloadable Books: The Madison Library is a member of NH Downloadable Books, a consortium of libraries that purchase e-books and downloadable books together, organized and administered by the NH State Library. Library card holders of member libraries have access to thousands of titles with this service. To use NH Downloadable Books, you need a valid Madison Library card, the new type with a barcode and a 14-digit library card number.
