Mixing it up! Coding in classical reading promotion

The public library is a „third place“ for children and teens as well as for adults. To fulfill this role the library needs to adapt to children‘s and young adults interests and media habits. Today reading promotion in children’s libraries includes more than promoting books – digital tools and digitized media became a common phenomenon in the average children’s librarian toolbox. In Berlin, Germany, the public children’s libraries use digital media and tools to connect children’s and young adult’s daily life with the library as a place where they find all the media they use so naturally. The library is also a place where they improve their digital skills systematically.
