While not everyone who signed up for the OverDrive Challenge hit the 25% goal or higher, many libraries had their highest circulating month ever during June. We’d like to congratulate everyone who participated in the OverDrive Challenge and wish you continued success with the growth of your digital library checkouts.

Next week in the blog we’ll feature some of the unique strategies used to boost circulation from our winning libraries. Looking for ways to raise awareness of your digital collection? Make sure to visit the Partner Portal for free marketing and training resources, available 24/7.
