From eBooks, audiobooks, movies, music, software tutorials, digital magazines and every database possible, the learning options are endless with BiblioTech.
The i-Loom will allow the user to learn, create and share weaving creation that is pre-designed through the i-Loom app, or create their own one of a kind works of art. This activity is available at the Innovation Station for use before school, after school or during lunch or throughout the day with a pass.
