Stars in the Sunshine State: Revamping Summer Reading
Florida’s libraries do amazing things. We take a look at some of their special projects, achievements and awards on our Stars in the Sunshine State pages.
Heading into summer 2018, a staff shortage meant that Fort Walton Beach Public Library had to do things differently since the program would rely entirely on a single librarian.
Read about their community partnerships, library events, take-home activities and the results of their experiment.
Florida Libraries As: LUPD as Publisher
Florida libraries go beyond books. Check out our story on Lynn University Digital Press.
Lynn University didn't stop at instituting tablet-based learning, they created LUPD, run by the library, to publish faculty-written iBooks that students get for free.
You can watch videos on iPad learning as well.
We have stories on Florida Libraries As disaster relief centers, workforce recovery centers, galleries and more.
