Print vs. Digital - Get Them Both at the Library!

Ah, the ongoing discussion of print vs. non-print media. Here are two points of view: Brad Issacs on the 26 advantages of reading and Hens Zimmerman's rebuttal using the same criteria in evaluating digital media (both audiobooks & podcasts). Of course, I had to leave comments on both blogs about checking out audiobooks from the public library - using my new favorite term "toggle." It seems the general public so often forgets that libraries exist to supply materials for free - either print or digital. Which reminds me - I need to finish my Teen Tech Week "How to download books using your public library card" workshop for my middle school students, parents & staff!
