11. Description of Example and Its Use in the Library:
This is a short eBook created to inform children about what they can do at the Haslet Public Library. This would be great to have on the library website and on the children's computers at the library.
12. Description of How the Example Capitalizes on the Tool's Potential:
Myebook has many potential uses in a library. Published eBooks can be shared with the public in almost any digital format, can be posted on the library website as a download, and can potentially be checked out as an eBook at the library. It will provide children with simple instructions on how to navigate the library and will give children a bit more confidence in finding items and asking for help.
