I sometimes pick up those cool Starbuck’s Free App/Free Song/Free Book cards when I’m at Starbucks buying a coffee. I think those cards are pretty cool, and I think they just might work in a library setting, too.
What if libraries did something like this – created some cards, and pointed to free content, like:
- Project Gutenberg free ebooks
- Free music via your Freegal account (or fill in the blank if you have another music database)
- Free event – have the card be the ticket to the event
- Free game – point to something on the web, or actually make an app-based game and point to that.
This idea is sort of like those signs I saw at the Denver airport awhile back.
So … thoughts? Do you think it would work in a library? I’d love to know!
And an aside – yes, I know the video is sorta jumpy. Sorry about that! I should have used the Focus Lock feature, and didn’t think about it. Next time!
