Summer at the Library: Your 2023 Guide
The biggest library program of the year is nearly here! Check out all the ways NoveList can help you put on the best Summer Reading program yet!
NoveList Select and BookChat: A perfect match 🤝
With NoveList Select, patrons can get the same expert help they find in the NoveList databases directly from your catalog, making it easier and faster for them to find their next great book. But what if they're looking at the catalog from home or after library hours? That's where BookChat comes in!
Readers' advisory is a team sport
Huddle up! Time to talk about our readers' advisory game plan. While reading is often a solitary activity, talking about books, finding your next great read, and sharing suggestions with the community are better when you work together as a team.
Amp up the anticipation with countdown timers
It’s a smart strategy to send e-blasts to announce new programs, remind people to renew their library cards, promote a new service, or invite your community to special events. Want to amp up the anticipation or get people to act now? Add a countdown timer!
Other duties as assigned: Weeding
It’s quite likely that if you work reference, RA, circulation, or other areas, you’ll be asked to help maintain the integrity and relevance of your library’s collection. And that’s where Core Collections can provide the support you might need to have confidence in your decisions to replace, rebuy, or even purchase.
SYNC up with Summer Reading
Each year, Sync: Audiobooks for Teens and Overdrive partner up to offer the SYNC summer reading program for teens, in which they give away two digital audiobook downloads each week. All your patrons need to do is sign up!
