Subject: Are You Promoting or Using Books with Apps or Enhanced Ebooks in Your Library?

If so, we’d like to hear from you!

We (Rachel McDonald and Jackie Parker) will be speaking on transmedia (stories told across multiple platforms, such as websites, videos, and apps) at the International Federation of Library Associations this summer and we’d like to gather some examples of how classrooms and libraries (public or school) are using new technologies around books to connect with teen patrons. What might this look like?

Checking out ereaders or tablets that are pre-loaded with apps or enhanced ebooks to patrons or students
Promoting/demonstrating enhanced ebooks, and/or apps, videos or websites related to books (e.g. 39 Clues, Skeleton Creek, etc.) to teens/tweens

Running a teen book club focused on books that incorporate elements of transmedia (stories told across multiple platforms)

Please email rmmcdonald@kcls.org to share your best practices. Thank you!
