App Information

Here at Little eLit, we want to help librarians find, learn about, and use apps that meet the needs of their programming audiences and fit their program styles. On this section of the website, you’ll find links to Little eLit’s own tried-and-true apps for library programming, app review sources, and app lists from a variety of librarians who use them in their libraries.
