I'd have to say that our library is louder than ever these days! And one of the reasons for that is our amazingly adventurous and creative new librarian, Kate Ricter. In a 4th grade lesson about a virtual twist on digital storytelling, she explained how virtual reality has transformed certain books. Imagine that! Books that require programming, staging, and loads of creativity beyond writing and illustrating! Using the book, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, an Apple TV, an iPad stand, and the app IMAG-N-O-TRON, Ms. Ricter showcased this award-winning story about people who absolutely love books. As she hovered her iPad over the book, animations magically escaped the printed page to jump about right out at her audience! Thanks for making reading even more magical, Ms. Ricter!
