Subject: Winter Break Reading for Children

Ron Maas here, from Fable Learning (formerly known as StarWalk Kids Media).

I’m writing to let you know that Fable Learning is once again opening up our very popular free winter reading program called The PopUp Library, starting on December 16, 2016.   We hope you will share this news with your member libraries and schools, and encourage them to share the access information shown below with their patrons, children, teachers, and students.


     December 16, 2016  - January 3, 2017

     Free Winter PopUp Library



Starting on December 16, our exclusive collection of 650 eBooks will be available free to anyone with internet access — children, families, educators — who would like to browse and read from our broad range of engaging fiction and nonfiction eBooks for children.

Visitors to this site during winter break can immediately read any eBook in our PreK-8 collection, which is carefully curated for exceptional quality titles from well-known and respected authors and illustrators and includes a robust Spanish Bilingual Collection for ELLs.

How The Winter PopUp Library Works:

   * Everyone has automatic access starting on Dec. 16 at FableLearning.com/PopUp

   * No check-in or check-out is required to read any of our titles

   * No user identification is required

For the winter break and over the holidays, our goal is to help kids read more than ever before, and hopefully share their enthusiasm for the eBooks they’re reading with their families!

For those libraries and schools who choose to participate in this program, we have created promotional support materials like tent-cards and send-home flyers as printable PDFs. You can find and download these materials at https://fablelearning.com/extras/marketing-materials.html

If you have any questions or need more information about the PopUp Library, please feel free to contact me at the address below.   Thanks so much for your support, and for encouraging reading for children everywhere!

Best regards,


Ron Maas
