Blind Date with a Book

We recently completed this promotion which included both a digital and physical version. According to Collection Development Director Thais Rousseau, from 2/1-2/15 we had 7,927 digital checkouts on hoopla. We found members were checking out the featured Blind Date titles, as well as additional titles through hoopla. The highest use dates were right after our first email blast about the promotion which set records for hoopla use. We had 716 checkouts on 2/2/20 and 603 on 2/3/20. The five eBooks we were promoting were the top circulating titles during that time for us, beating out even the popular audiobooks.

  1.  And Then There Were None -57 checkouts
  2.  The Gown- 39 checkouts
  3.  Love Lettering- 37 checkouts
  4.  The Yellow House- 31 checkouts
  5.  The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet- 22 checkouts

Senior Associate Director of Public Service Jolee Hamlin added that the in-branch Blind Date collection generated approximately 1,135 checkouts.

Reader's Roundtable Podcast Live!

As part of CADL's partnership with the Mid-Michigan Women's Expo, the Reader's Roundtable Podcast was recorded  live from the event. This was a first for us.  The hosts are collection specialists Jessica Trotter, Mari Garza and Chery Lindemann. CADL also had an expo booth and sponsored a speed painter on the main stage . (photos attached)
