Boosting Engagement in Your Digital Library

Once your school district makes the commitment to have a digital library, the next step is for people to understand how they can stay engaged. In “Secrets from the Front Lines: How Schools Can Boost Digital Engagement,” Kelly Hladek, Library Media Specialist and Technology Liaison at Morton High School, School City of Hammond, IN, discussed best practices for engaging students, teachers and the community in the district’s eBook and audiobook collection. In just one year of having a digital collection, checkouts from the district’s digital library increased by 184 percent.
