Kindles added to Jr. High Library

DSCN0576The PBL Education Foundation recently awarded an innovation grant of $700 to Emily Ward, Jr. High Library Media specialist, for the purchase of 4 Kindle Fires.  Before the addition of the Kindles, the library had three Nook e-readers, which were almost always checked out.  According to Ward, besides more than doubling the current e-reader circulation capacity, adding the Kindle Fires “motivates even the best readers to read more, and  also helps to bridge the gap for struggling readers by connecting text and audio simultaneously.”
