BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Broward County Library is enabling eligible students in kindergarten to third grade (K-3) to check out a 10.5" iPad w/Apple keyboard and cellular-enabled data plan for the duration of the Library's Summer Learning Program (June 1 to August 14, 2021) for free.

The iPads will be loaded with reviewed and approved apps. Students will be able to read eBooks, watch educational videos and digitally participate in the Summer Learning Program.

“Broward County Library's 'My Digital Summer Learning Program' is designed to help bridge the digital divide, support digital equity and alleviate the summer, and now COVID, backsliding,” explains Dr. Roslyn Dean, EdD, Community Engagement Manager for Broward County Library. “Students will have access to the Beanstack reading tracker app and loads of other apps to maintain their reading levels during the summer months.”

Participation in the program takes place at the Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library, Lauderdale Lakes Library/ Educational and Cultural Center and Lauderhill Central Park, Lauderhill Towne Centre, Carver Ranches, Riverland and Tyrone Bryant branches, with resources available for 60 children.
