Kids eReading Room Popularity Grows!

http://ebooks.lvccld.org/2FFD69DA-2D6A-4E54-A8D2-1F88AC520644/10/45/en/SearchResults.htm?SearchID=44849962
During March ( the first full month of the site being live) young children visited the site and checked out 425 eBooks and eAudio Books.

Kindle format eBooks have been the most popular with 182 checks in March followed by 100 for the ePUB format.

Not every library has checkouts from the Kids eReading Room - only 18 out of 29 libraries have their patrons used the children's site.

The ability to customize the collections within the eReading Room allows us to purchase books of interest to young readers. Also, developmentally appropriate material is now more easily accessible to teachers and parents since content can be searched by reading and interest level.  This month we added a new feature called Like This Try These. The feature encourages children to read different authors which they may also enjoy.

Encourage your children or grandchildren to use the Kids eReading Room for a great eBook experience.
