StarWalk Kids Media Supports Summer Reading: Free eBook Access Throughout July!
GREAT NECK, N.Y., July 12, 2013 -- StarWalk Kids Media announced that it has made all 160+ eBooks in its collection available free of charge for anyone with Internet access - children, families and educators - during the entire month of July. Launched via a viral Twitter campaign with the hashtag #PopUpLibrary, word quickly spread throughout the education and library communities, and nearly 3,000 eBooks were read in first three days of the offer.
"We celebrated our first year of existence at the American Library Association national conference in Chicago," said founder and author Seymour Simon. "It has been a very successful launch year for the company, and we all felt that it was time to give back. Opening our streaming collection for everyone to sample and share with kids via summer reading programs felt like the right way to say 'thanks' for a great year."
