Dramatic Growth | LJ‘s Second Annual Ebook Survey | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

We knew ebooks were booming in libraries, but now the 2011 Ebook Penetration & Use in U.S. Libraries Survey confirms just how big the boom is. The answer: BIG, but with lots more uptake to go and some telling holdouts as the market and models take shape.

A National Effort to Read to Kids 15 Minutes a Day Needs Our Support

A National Effort to Read to Kids 15 Minutes a Day Needs Our Support | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Read Aloud 15 Minutes is a nonprofit organization that's working to make reading aloud every day for at least 15 minutes.

 

The American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) made big news back in June 2014 when they announced that doctors will begin dispensing some new advice to parents of young children. During well-child visits, pediatricians will inform parents and caregivers that reading aloud, along with singing and talking to young children on a daily basis, contributes to brain development and kindergarten readiness.

"Flash mobs -- with a family-friendly twist" is the way the Toronto Star has described the four StoryMobs which Toronto Public Library ran this past summer. Great way to bring reading alive and celebrate as a community.

Read Slowly to Benefit Your Brain and Cut Stress

Read Slowly to Benefit Your Brain and Cut Stress | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Once a week, members of a Wellington, New Zealand, book club arrive at a cafe, grab a drink and shut off their cellphones. Then they sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour.

 

The point of the club isn't to talk about literature, but to get away from pinging electronic devices and read, uninterrupted. The group calls itself the Slow Reading Club, and it is at the forefront of a movement populated by frazzled book lovers who miss old-school reading.

If library users want to print works out on paper or store them on a USB stick, however, rights holders must be fairly compensated.

...librarians are wonderful at idea sharing, and one great resource is Little eLit (www.littleelit.com).  There are photos and blog posts of librarians around the country using technology in story times.  If you see or read something that you think will work for you and your space, you can reach out directly to that librarian to find out more specifics about how she set up her system.  Check out their “Programming” section for write-ups of different technology-infused storytimes, and see their “Gallery” (lower right hand side of page) for photos.
