Bright Spots Communities
The Bright Spots Communities showcase the work that Grade-Level Reading communities are doing to make progress on school readiness, school attendance and summer learning.
San Antonio Housing Authority
The San Antonio Housing Authority is redefining our understanding of what a library can be. They recently opened the Dr. Ricardo BiblioTech, which is the second branch of the BiblioTech Digital Library, the country’s first digital library. This new branch is part of the Gardens of San Juan Square public housing complex in Bexar County, Texas. It offers residents easy access to computers, e-readers, and over 38,000 e-books. BiblioTech has partnered with 14 school districts and 58 schools to reach students and provide individualized e-readers adjusted to student’s reading levels and goals. Through HUD’s ConnectHome Wi-Fi program, students have 24/7 access to the digital book collection.
