Next month, we’re launching our annual Outreach Program Contest, asking you to share your best marketing and outreach efforts. We’ll reward the most creative and effective entries with prizes, so start brainstorming now about the creative ways your library has been promoting your OverDrive collection over the past year! We’ll choose winners in the following categories:

  •     Online
  •     Inside the Library
  •     Outside the Library
  •     Test Drive

Additionally, we’ll name a Grand Prize winner among all libraries submitting entries to the contest.

The Outreach Program Contest is open to all OverDrive library partners, including main and branch locations, and libraries participating in an OverDrive shared collection. Entries submitted for previous years’ contests are not eligible.

Want to get inspired? You can view last year’s winning entries and make sure to take advantage of the marketing resources available in our Online Marketing Kit and in the Resources section of the Learning Center.

The brand-new Test Drive category is open to participating libraries enrolled in Test Drive, a free program for libraries that supports staff and patron training with demonstrations and lending of eBook reading devices and tablets. Learn more and enroll today at

Check back near the end of April to learn about the fabulous prizes and to see how you can enter to win!
