      Abstract: Chapter 1 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology”The Free Reading Zones (FREZ) project turns public and private spaces into open virtual libraries for the sake of enabling reading, promoting literacy, and exposing books for discovery through strategic marketing. In chapter 1 of this issue of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology,” Roncevic provides an in-depth overview of FREZ—its mission, vision, and business model and the library’s role in the project.

    • Authors: Mirela Roncevic
      Pages: 16 - 22
      Abstract: Chapter 2 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology”Chapter 2 of this issue of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology,” aims to clarify the benefits of Free Reading Zones (FREZ) by focusing on the many ways in which they empower all who create, distribute, and consume e-books, ways in which they equalize access to knowledge and education in areas beyond thriving city communities, and ways in which they allow those who participate to align missions with other industries and form new partnerships to mutual profit. The chapter explores how FREZ benefits the culture, education, and tourism of a community and concludes with suggestions for how libraries can get involved in similar initiatives.

      Pages: 23 - 28
      Abstract: Chapter 3 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology”Chapter 3 of this issue of Library Technology Reports (vol. 53, no. 7), “Free Reading Zones: Transforming Access to Books through Technology,” explores how a small private business could be turned into an impressive virtual library through the use of technology—the kind of library that allows users to have access to knowledge in ways they couldn’t fathom in the past. Roncevic explains how she launched her first Free Reading Zone (FREZ) in a small European café in September of 2016 and gives an overview of how she planned to launch a FREZ for the whole country of Croatia. The chapter describes why the country of Croatia was chosen for the first FREZ, the technology and app behind the virtual library, and the marketing and launch of the initiative.
