OverDrive is trying a new promotion this month. During June, if the NEIBORS Consortia increases circulation by 25% over its best month they will receive $1,500 in content credit to build the collection. If it is increased by 50%, they will receive $2,500. That's a lot of new books (ebooks and audio) for the collection. Our library is part of the NEIBORS program, so we are especially trying to promote it this month. Those of you who are local patrons of the library may access the program through our library website. www.reinbeck.lib.ia.us. Go to the neibors tab and register with your library card number. You may download up to three audio and or ebooks at a time. For those of you already using the program, keep it up! We especially encourage use this month in order to have more titles to select from.
