At the beginning of June we announced our OverDrive Curated Collection naming contest and, after receiving loads of wonderful entries, we’re excited to share that voting is now open! Simply click this link to see full list of all entries, sorted by category, and choose your three favorite collection names. To make sure the contest is fair we have omitted the library names and choices will be randomized each time the survey is shown. Each voter can take the survey once, selecting up to three of your favorite options per category. Voting will run through the end of July.

When visiting the survey, you’ll find the responses broken out into five categories: Adult, Kids, Teens, Seasonal, and Audio. As a reminder, winners will be given content credit  for OverDrive Marketplace to spend on growing those beautifully named collections. There will be a first and second place prize winner for each of the 5 categories, listed above. First place winners will receive a $500.00 content credit and second places winners will receive a $250.00 content credit. Official rules will apply. We will announce winners at Digipalooza 2017. If you are unable to attend we’ll notify you via email following the conference.
