Wowbrary!


So check this out!  There is a new e-newsletter that you can sign up for - it's free - to find out what books your local public library (in the U.S.) has ordered during the past week.  It's called Wowbrary, and I think it's a wonderful idea - just pop on over to their website.  The caveat here is that your library must participate in the program, and happily, mine just joined up!  Just enter your zipcode to see if your library is a participant.

My first newsletter arrived, and even though I work at the library, there were some goodies on there that definitely would have escaped my attention.  I hate when that happens, and I end up at the bottom of a massive waiting list!  Not anymore, though.  One of the books that I put on hold is Scumble - the sequel to Savvy by Ingrid Law.  I hadn't even realized there was a sequel in the works.  Aren't libraries just the best?

  1. Oh very cool! My library has a thing that will let you scroll through the books that came in in the past month but this is much better!

  3. Ladytink - Ours has that, too, but I always forget to check it out. This comes to me, which I love. Hope yours has it, too!

    Maw Books - That's great! Glad to hear it. :-)
