Saturday May 31 is the last day to register for June’s OverDrive Challenge! Join the many public library partners from across the globe that have already signed up and are ready for the challenge. There’s no risk to you to participate – in fact, just for registering, you are automatically entered to win a Google Nexus tablet!
The OverDrive Challenge for the month of June is to increase your digital library circulation to beat your best month on record. If you can increase circulation in June by 25% or 50% from your best month, you’re a winner! If you reach these goals in June, your library will receive a prize of content credit or an exciting service enhancement of a Kids’/Teens’ eReading Room (25%) or an OverDrive Media Station (50%). The library that increases their circulation the most out of everyone participating will receive a Gadget Jackpot, full of devices, content credit and more. Read more about the prizes and make sure to check out the official rules for more details about eligibility.
This is an opportunity for you to find creative and innovative ways to spread the word about your digital collection to your community and find what works best for you. Every library is different and we’re looking forward to seeing the many ways our partners are generating awareness about their eBooks, digital audiobooks, streaming video and music. We’d love for the OverDrive Challenge to be a catalyst for our partners to set more individual goals and see circulation growth month to month through promotion, education and collection development.
