Macmillan Changes - Info for patrons

On behalf of the WPLC Steering Committee, WPLC project managers have put together a Q&A for patrons about the Macmillan changes. Systems and libraries can use the below information to share directly with their patrons. This information was also sent out to the WPLC patron focus group (a group of over 5,000 Wisconsin Library patrons who have opted in to provide feedback to the WPLC).


For WPLC Patrons:

Libraries Transform Book Club

OverDrive just announced their partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) to host the Libraries Transform Book Pick for all U.S. public libraries. This program is designed to connect readers across the country with their local libraries — and provide a great book for a digital book club!

So, what does that mean for WPLC? The title, After the Flood, by Kassandra Montag, will be available at no cost with simultaneous use to all WPLC patrons during the book club, October 7-21.

Wisconsin Author Contest and New Popup Picks!

The Wisconsin Author contest closed at the end of May. We had a total of 76 submissions (56 adult and 20 YA titles)!  Submissions are currently being reviewed and the winner will be announced in early fall. The winner will receive $1000 cash prize donated by BiblioBoard and will be invited to the WLA Awards and Honors Banquet at the annual WLA Conference in October.
