Children’s librarians are experts in evaluating and selecting good quality media, and as libraries adopt emerging technologies, those same skills apply. There are thousands of eBooks and Apps for kids. How can libraries help parents provide their children with high quality digital media? How can we use our storytelling and collection development skills and apply them to the digital world? Discover ways to incorporate book apps with children’s books and share your ideas with librarians, teachers and patrons.
