Door County Library’s summer reading activities has gone virtual, and one of the benefits is real-time data. Migrating close to two months of programming online has the library learning on the fly as to what works and what doesn’t work. Participants are using the app Beanstack to enter information on their reading habits, and Assistant Librarian Morgan Mann says she is having some fun running reports already.
In previous years, numbers were tallied at the end of the program, so true comparisons won’t be possible until August. Mann says she expects the community to warm to the online format over time.
