Gaither hopes its students get hooked on books by reading them on Nooks

Gaither High School hopes to turn more students into regular readers by stocking the media center with a cartful of Nooks. Reading coach Patricia Albrecht said the Gaither faculty always is trying ways to help students become more successful, and technology plays a big role in motivating the teens. "It's 21st-century students, and they like 21st-century technology," Albrecht said. "We need to get kids reading again. They're not reading, and we need to motivate them to read. We wanted to make reading cool."
