Check this app out!

Title: iPoe – the Interactive and Illustrated Edgar Allan Poe Collection by Play Creatividad

Cost: $3.99

Platform: iOS 4.3 or later on iPhone and iPad
Mr. Edgar Allan Poe just celebrated his 204th birthday last month (Jan 19). Even though his writing is almost two centuries old, patrons still check out Poe’s macabre stories for required and leisure reading. There is something about Poe’s language that makes me want to either draw a picture or share the text out loud (“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary…”). Apparently, I’m not alone; I was thrilled to learn about the iPoe interactive app from a fellow techie earlier this month. Full of creepy illustrations, sounds, and interactive components, this five-star app digitizes Poe’s most famous tales for a modern audience.

Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

Teens, share your opinions about what you’d like to see and do at Wauconda Area Library while earning community service hours. Help tackle projects, meet new people, and have fun! TAB participation looks great on job and college applications and will allow you to make a difference at your library. To get involved, stop by the Adult Services Reference Desk to pick up an application. You don’t need a completed application to attend meetings, but your parent or guardian must sign your application before you can participate in volunteer projects.
