What is Wowbrary?
Wowbrary is a nonprofit service that provides you free weekly emails and RSS feeds about your local library’s most recent acquisitions. We’ve found that users of Wowbrary emails are both awed and excited when they discover their local public library’s abundance of new books, DVDs, and CDs.
Our service reaches both avid library patrons and those who haven’t used libraries in years. Wowbrary serves as an attractive online version of the new-book shelf, but one that spans all library branches, includes items that are checked out, and comes by convenient email or RSS for those who don’t visit the library website or facilities regularly. By showcasing the latest arrivals and allowing patrons to click through directly to the library website, Wowbrary makes it easy to scan quickly what’s new and encourages greater library use.
How do I get the weekly emails?
It’s really easy. Simply type your ZIP code in the upper left box and hit the Go button. Wowbrary shows the libraries nearest you, and you select one of them. Some libraries are already part of Wowbrary’s service. In that case you will receive your weekly email within one week. Other libraries have not yet joined Wowbrary. If you sign up for one of those, we will contact the library and let you know as soon as the library has joined Wowbrary.
How do I get the RSS feeds?
That’s also really easy. Simply type your ZIP code in the upper left box and hit the Go button. Wowbrary shows the libraries nearest you that have Wowbrary RSS feeds. Press the RSS button next to the one you want.
