Today, Michelle Obama officially launched the Open eBooks app.
Open eBooks is best described as a “library of opportunity.” Targeting youth in need, Open eBooks makes thousands of popular and award-winning titles freely accessible to children and adolescents from low-income households.
As Readium experts, Evident Point began working on this project with the New York Public Library last summer. With Readium at its core, the app allows children and teens to easily access the full text and illustrations of thousands of titles, which were generously contributed by publishers.
Many thanks to Juan, Raduz, and Ben for their work on this great project.
