How can we be expected to resist this?
Well, we can't. Not when library e-book use has grown exponentially from when NCLS started lending them in 2011. Not when everyone and their next door neighbor wants to read Sycamore Row/The Book Thief/The Goldfinch/The Fault in Our Stars. Not when I have a collection wish list as long as my leg. (Which, okay, I'm short, but still. For a list, it's long.)
Our best month to date was March 2014, where we circulated 3,340 items. A 25% increase over that figure is 4,175, leaving a difference of 835.
835! Only 835 e-media checkouts stand between us and $1500 worth of new e-books! Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure we got this.
So, tell your friends, tell your mom, tell your friends' moms. We have fiction. We have nonfiction. We have romance, mystery, and sci-fi. We have biographies. We have true crime. We have young adult, middle grade and picture books. We have audio for all ages.
We also have this handy guide to downloading library e-books to your device.
Everyone with me? Excellent! Let's do this thing! Let's win $1500 worth of e-books for the North Country!
