Congratulations to New York Public Library, winner of OverDrive’s first LibraryBIN (Buy It Now) Community Outreach Contest!
NYPL supporters bought the most titles purchased at LibraryBIN last month, helping the library win a $1,500 collection credit. Other partners, like Maryland’s Digital eLibrary Consortium, Michigan’s Midwest Collaborative for Library Services, Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, and Pennsylvania’s North Central District Library, were very close behind.
All participating libraries reached out to their customers using promotional assets like posters, flyers, emails, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and anything else they could think of. Take a look at some of their efforts:

Las Vegas-Clark County Library
Starkville Public Library
Birmingham Public Library

We know this isn’t everything, so if your library posted anything online promoting LibraryBIN last month, leave a link in the comments section.
Thank you to all LibraryBIN libraries for getting the word out! We will be hosting additional LibraryBIN contests in the future. If your library doesn’t currently participate in LibraryBIN, but would like to, contact email@example.com to sign up.
