8 Awesome Ways Libraries Are Making Learning Fun by Jordan Lloyd Bookey


In my line of work, I get to meet a lot of librarians. Our company works with public libraries to promote early literacy and boost family engagement. That means we partner with people constantly coming up with new ways to make reading–and learning in general–more fun. And what I’m constantly amazed by is how much libraries have changed. Last week, a friend asked me an interesting question. “Libraries are so antiquated,” she said. “Are they really open to new technologies or services like yours?” Yes, this old school perception persists…and many parents are missing out! As Annisha Jeffries at Cleveland Public Library put it, “When you left the library, that’s what it still is for you.” So if you haven’t visited since 1990, well, you may be thinking VHS. But, as Heidi Nagel at Kent District Library said, the reality is that, “increasingly, libraries are stretching our expectations.”
