San Antonio to open first bookless public library

San Antonio to open first bookless public library | Spencer School Library | Scoop.it
Bexar County is set to open the first entirely bookless public library in San Antonio this fall.

 

A new library, known as the Bibliotech, to be opened in Bexar County, Texas, will provide visitors with a bank of e-Readers for borrowing e-books ... but books of the traditional paper variety will be glaringly absent. The project marks the first public library to be built as an all-digital service and just to make sure library-goers are in no doubt that it's the 21st century, the interior will feature a design influenced by Apple retail stores.

 

San Antonio isn’t new to the concept of bookless libraries. The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) was one of the first academic institutions to offer its students a bookless library in 2010, implementing a system that proved popular with students. The public library system will differ from UTSA’s in that it will be “designed for, not adapted to, the digital age”,according to Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff.

I really like how this book selection chart takes a lot of the emphasis off of 'Is this book your reading level?' and places it more on 'Does this book look interesting to you?'.  I definitely think stimulating interest in reading is so much more important than worrying over AR and DRA levels in the school library.

Cool Tools: Create your own learning games for free  | Spencer School Library | Scoop.it

Designing and building games used to require specialized programming skills, and for complex games that’s still true. But now there are some excellent services that allow nonprogrammers to build some nice games. Used in the classroom, these services allow students to focus on creating games that are factually correct, informational, and fun to play without requiring you to address programming skills.
