Paige’s Page!

I am so happy to announce that Little eLit will be the home of Paige’s Page; regular app recommendations posted by Paige Bentley-Flannery. Paige is a Children’s/Community Librarian at Deschutes Public Library in Oregon.  She is also the chair of the ALSC Digital Content Task Force and is one of the most enthusiastic librarians I have ever met. Paige uses all sorts of apps in her programs for kids (not just book based apps) and has a real knack for making connections among literacy, art and the digital realm. Paige, Genesis and I presented a program together at CLA 2012 and we all agreed that we’d love to keep working together to create a community of knowledge that helps other librarians begin to incorporate digital media into kids programming in a way that supports literacy development. Show us the apps, Paige!

  1. Thank you for your post, Cen. I think it’s great how the newer technologies–and apps for children–are making literacy and learning much more dynamic and enjoyable. I hope to see more librarians like yourself working to integrate more of the digital content into library collections for children and youth.
