Steal this idea: Express Checkout Promotions

Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, is one of three recipients of the Engaging Readers at Your Public Library grant. Earlier this year, CKPL completed a four-month campaign to engage patrons and energize staff in reading, watching, learning and playing with CKPL’s collections. We recently chatted with Manager of Support Services Heidi Wyma about one of the innovative ideas her library tested during this campaign that you might want to try at your library.

EveryLibrary and LibraryAware voting YES on libraries

When I was growing up, my parents always took me with them when they went to vote -- every single election; general, primary, special, local, national.

Our work…and our resolutions

It’s time to start thinking about what we want to accomplish at NoveList in 2018, and while we have official objectives at the individual, department, and company-wide levels, the truth is that working at NoveList is more than a job -- it’s also tied very closely to our love of books, reading, readers’ advisory, and libraries!
