With the Wriveted bookbot a child does not need to know what they are looking for. They just need to know what they prefer.
We work with schools and public libraries to make sure our Bookbot suits the needs of its child readers, has the right tone, and maps to the library collection.
Designed especially for 5 -12 year olds, the Bookbot can be used on any web browser, or with our kiosks. A child is asked fun questions about the things they like, then they get a list of books they will enjoy.
We use machine learning techniques to provide your library with insightful reports on what children do and don’t like about any collection.
Reading FOR pleasure
Yes it does!
74% of children aged 6-17 years old said they would read more, if they could find books they enjoy, according to an Australian study. We've made to fun for children to find books that interest them. Because children that do not enjoy reading are 11 times more likely to read below their age level.
DesigNED for enjoyment
Our bookbots take on a special relationship with children when they have a physical presence in the library. These kiosks act as a magnet for conversation and discussion around books. Children line up to use the kiosks.
We worked with children and the State Library of NSW to make sure our designs were engaging.
We'll discuss with you how best to get your library's collection into the bookbot.
We'll get busy generating a library specific bookbot for your readers.
We'll send you a unique web address, QR codes, and media you can publish to get your readers finding books they will enjoy.
For Library kiosks we'll arramge installation and an instructional workshop for librarians, and readers.
We want to create experiences that empower children to find books they love to read.
"Students who did not normally visit the library were coming in at lunchtime to use the bot and borrow books because it was fun."
"This will provide an engaging, browsable area for children and families to explore the breadth and diversity of our unique children’s literature collection. "
"I was talking to a Stage 3 teacher who told me the book bot chose some books for one of the girls in her class - she said she had never seen the little girl read a book from cover to cover like that before."
