Eisenhower Public Library District is pleased to announce that it has received a $2,000 grant from Best Buy Mobile and YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Division of the American Library Association). The grant is earmarked for electronic resources for the Teen department. Eisenhower plans to use the money to purchase dedicated nook e-readers. These will be filled with e-books by authors for the 2014 LitWorks teen literature festival, a program sponsored by Eisenhower and Ridgewood High School.
2014 will be the fifth year for LitWorks, a community supported event that attracts approximately 300 teens, parents, and teachers. Having participating authors’ books available electronically will give teens a different way to experience these vibrant stories. LitWorks nooks will be available starting this summer.
