ISL’s Professional Development Office is excited to announce that we have added Samsung Galaxy Nooks to our eReader Kits!
What are these eReader Kits? Supported by an LSTA grant, the kits are collections of eReaders and tablets that are available for checkout via your PDO Regional Coordinator. Public and school libraries can book a kit for up to 3 months, and the Regional Coordinator will deliver them right to your desk (AND pick them back up)! Your library can use the kits to train staff or even in a “Petting Zoo” style program for your patrons.
Your Regional Coordinator can offer training to small groups of your staff on how to use the devices, including downloading materials from different eBook vendors. We specialize in OverDrive, but can work with you to offer training on other vendors.
Each kit currently contains 1 iPad, 1 Kindle Fire, 1 Kindle, 1 Surface Pro, and—now—1 Samsung Galaxy Nook! We are thrilled to offer so many different platforms on which you and your patrons can learn to navigate electronic materials.
Book a kit today!
