How to Increase Reading Rates with eBooks and Audiobooks


Join us for a look at the incredible opportunity eBooks and audiobooks offer librarians to evolve their role and become even more valuable members of the school community. We’ll hear from Faye Hagerty, director of library services for the North East Independent School District in Texas, who will share her experience increasing reading rates by 200 percent through the district’s digital library platform.

Faye will explore the factors that have been critical to the district’s digital success, including:

  •  Proactive collection development and curation
  •  Increasing access
  • Setting goals and promotion
  • Student and staff training

There will be plenty of time for Q&A to get answers to your specific questions related to your own students. Plus, two door prizes will be given at the end of the session. This webinar is designed for librarians, curriculum and building administrators as well as anyone else interested in using e-readers to increase reading rates.
