For the month of June, OverDrive, East Central Regional Library’s Digital Library vendor, is launching a promotional challenge to help raise awareness of library eBook lending across the world. Our mission from June 1st-June 30th is to beat our previous record for monthly eBook and eAudiobook checkouts.
ECRL’s best month on record? The number to beat? Our current monthly record is 5,031 digital library checkouts (March 2014).
Your Goal: checkout as many eBooks and eAudiobooks in June as you can!
- Increase checkouts by 25% from March 2014 (6,289 checkouts) to earn $1,500 credit to purchase new digital library titles
- Increase checkouts by 50% from March 2014 (7,547 checkouts) to earn $2,500 credit to purchase new digital library titles
- Be the participating library with the highest percentage increase to receive a grand prize Gadget Jackpot!
