Supporting student technology as a public library

Hello! I just wanted to start a discussion about what we can do to support students as a public library. We loan mobile hotspots out and we also have WiFi that even when the library is closed, students can access by sitting in front of or behind the library. Any other ideas? Thank you! We are a small, rural library in Ohio.

  • Hi  

    I wanted to ask if you happen to have a program or are enrolled in Overdrive? I have yet to take advantage of the program, but anyone with a library card can sign up and access resources digitally for free. If not, I recommend having an in-house option for checking out digital resources. My local libraries used to have this but I believe they completely moved to Overdrive.

  • Yes, we do have Overdrive/Libby and also Hoopla! Thanks, Kelie!
