You Get What You Pay For

January 21, 2008

Our library system uses two excellent resources that cost money. One is a resource for newsletters; the other is a reader’s advisory database for children.

The newsletters resource comes with more than 20 ready-made newsletters featuring four titles each. These can be changed and/or added to each month. Also, you can create additional custom newsletters and webpages.

Read the Books is a reader’s advisory database for children that features three-dimensional character that tells the children about the title they’ve selected. Children can also vote on the books. Your school district’s Accelerated Reader or Reading Counts lists can be added to the database as well.
