Grants provide free e-readers
DeKALB – Patrons and small business owners are in for a treat: the DeKalb Public Library received 12 Kindle e-readers, one tablet and a collection of business books to add to its circulating collection.
The Kindles were given to the library as part of the Eliminating the Digital Divide Grant. The tablet and business books were awarded as part of the Business and Libraries project. Both grants were given by the Illinois State Library.
The 12 Kindles are in addition to two Kindles and one Nook already in circulation. These specific Kindles are a great tool for those who are visually impaired, as they have a text-to-speech capability and also include audio menus.
