On May 14th, the Winnipeg Public Library's new teen site BOOKED was awarded the 2008 Manitoba Library Association Innovation of the Year Award. Modern Earth is proud to have created this site, and thank Karin Borland, Sophie Walker, and the YAC for providing us with the opportunity to design such an innovative and interactive site for teen readers.

The site has had almost 8,000 visitors from 47 countries. We're especially excited to see The Mash Up starting to fill up with photos and creative writing! The site is made for interactivity - so we're glad to see teen readers using the features that make the site an award winner! Write a Review - Take A Poll - Add a Top Ten List - and more at BOOKED!


Akiva Levy, one of our programmers has decided to move his Family to their new homeland in Israel.

We wish you the best of success! Israel is a hot-bed of hi tech, so we're sure you'll be keeping busy.

Farewell, Akiva, and have a falafel for us!
