Biggest Online Children's Library

Biggest Online Children’s Library
to Debut November 20

The federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, in partnership with non-profit, industry, academic, and other government organizations today announced a five-year, $4.4 million plan to build a digital library freely available for children worldwide. The library will consist of 10,000 children’s books drawn from 100 cultures. The International Children’s Digital Library, developed by the Internet Archive and the University of Maryland, is part of a larger research project to develop new technology to serve young readers. No other library of this size, that is appropriate and accessible for 3-13 year olds, exists.
