Step One in the pilot program is to identify a handful of communities around the country that have experienced some hardship or extraordinary circumstances that have left their schools without access to books and other educational resources – fires, floods, storms or other Katrina-like disasters come to mind. Perhaps the town’s or the high school’s library burned down. In any case, this type of situation would be one in which a few dozen Kindles could have a significant impact, both in the short and the longer term. Or maybe a rural area which lost its library due to state budget cuts, and has to make do with a mobile library that stops once a month. If anyone can suggest any situations similar to these, please get in touch with me. Thanks.
