A sleeping giant in the digital media landscape, digital reading is here!
Libraries turn entire tables into online interactive reading tables!
As we know, hard copy newspapers have been around for many years, limiting you to the local news and events around your area. Gone are the days where you need to walk to your local shops to purchase your newspaper. PressReader allows you to have unlimited access to thousands of magazines and newspapers from around the world so you can stay connected to the stories you love with over 100 countries available.
CREATIKS have been pioneering this technology right here in Australia and are proud to have worked with City of Ryde Library to create a unique and engaging experience to their Library. The new interactive tables allow the diverse cultural community to read content from their home country and in the language they can understand. CREATIKS Interactive Tables are a fantastic opportunity that will deliver endless amounts of reading material while encouraging reading and community engagement, all within an enjoyable experience.
City of Ryde Library also chose to have their online catalogue system installed onto the interactive tables, OverDrive is a free service offered by the library or school that lets you borrow digital content (like eBooks and Audiobooks) anytime, anywhere. Every OverDrive collection is slightly different because each library or school chooses the digital content they want for their users.
Make sure you head over to City of Ryde Library to experience the difference!
