Library Offers eReaders for Teens

The Tompkins County Public Library has announced the addition of six Nook Simple Touch™ eReaders to its teen collection.

Teen Services Librarian Regina DeMauro-Axel said eReaders are an important tool to keep young adults engaged in reading and to ensure that they are afforded access to emerging technology.

“We recognize that teens live in a fast-paced, technologically advanced world and we want to help them learn to thrive in that environment,” DeMauro-Axel said.  “It is our hope that by promoting the use of eReaders and eBooks, teens will become comfortable with a new technology and help cement their comfort with the constantly evolving digital world.”

Each Nook® has been pre-loaded with 200 popular young adult titles in a variety of genres and can be borrowed—with a valid library card—for up to three weeks.

The devices were purchased by the Library with the support of the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation through generous grant funding from the Triad Foundation.
