We are very excited about our new Tablet Look-Up Station in the children’s room! It just went up this week, but so far our patrons are liking it.
We were fortunate enough to receive an LSTA grant to be able to purchase the tablet and hardware. (This look-up station replaces our old computer look-up.) It’s sleek, takes up less room, and best of all…since it’s a tablet…you can talk to it! Kids who can’t yet spell, or have trouble spelling, can speak to the tablet to search. Hooray for technology!
In case you want the specifics:
Power: We had an electrician put an outlet in the ceiling directly above the tablet so that we can plug it in and recharge at night. (It cost about $150 to have an outlet installed.)

Update: Here’s an update from a month after installing the tablet, and a review of parental controls!
