With the Kindle, when you purchase a book you can download the title on up to six separate devices. This would be like getting six books for the price of one. Each Kindle can hold up to 3500 books, so we could add 3500 books to our collection on a device that takes up less space than the average paperback. The Kindles would be cataloged as AV Equipment and the Kindles books would be cataloged as eBooks with a notation of which Kindle they were downloaded to. The Kindles will be available for checkout to all students after the student and his or her parent/guardian has attended an orientation on using the Kindles. Following the presentation on the proper use of the Kindles, both the student and the responsible adult will have to sign a pledge stating that they have read and understand the acceptable use form for the Kindle. Just like a student is responsible for the replacement cost of a lost or damaged book, so too would the student be responsible for the replacement or repair cost of the Kindle. Having the Kindles available for use by students in other media centers has increased the number of books students are reading. This project will also provide incentives for participants that will be awarded when they reach designated numbers of books read. Students’ names will also be put in a drawing for a grand prize each time they finish a book. This project is an attempt to increase the amount of time students spend reading high quality literature.
