reading matters, so let's make public library reader services awesome!

Lending eReaders

Our library plans to develop a program this year on lending preloaded eReaders. Many libraries do this already, including a couple of places where I know the librarians so will get some first-hand advice. I’d like for our program to reach people who most need help accessing this technology; people with low digital literacy or from low socio-economic backgrounds.
A quick search online found a good checklist for libraries considering this program (I appreciate the sharing of knowledge!) – Alberta Library, Canada. and a user survey here : WVML Pilot Project Outline: http://goo.gl/ej1Hh.

Lending the devices will support reading and enable people to try devices to see which they like.
