Create Reading Happiness: Library Card Sign Up month and Celebrating Read an eBook Day
By: Adam Sockel, Social Media Specialist
September is known around the literary world as Library Card Sign Up Month, a time to boost awareness of all the goodness your library has to offer. Sometimes it’s as simple as reminding families in the community what you have to offer. As of 2010, libraries in the United States offered more than 2.3 million children’s programs, which account for nearly two thirds of all library programming. September also happens to line up with back to school time which is convenient seeing as a free library card is the most important school supply of all!
In alignment with Library Card Sign Up Month, OverDrive will be celebrating the 3rd annual Read an eBook Day on September 16, spreading the love for the convenience and ease of use of digital content available from the library. On Our Create Reading Happiness homepage we’ve provided loads of ideas to help you capitalize on both of these great opportunities and bring in new users to your library. Our goal is to help you both to create new library card users within your community as well as get your current users to interact with your wonderful programs and content as often as possible! We’re here to help you “Create Reading Happiness” and have your readers spreading the #eBookLove all year long.
