Do you Subscribe to E-Newsletters?

You should, they are fab! In case you are not familiar with e-newsletters I will tell you a little bit about them. E-newsletters are similar to regular paper newsletters, creatively full of material on a range of subjects but sent to you in a digital format. I subscribe to dozens of e-newsletters from libraries around the country mainly on book topics such as romance, cooking, new fiction, new DVDs etc... and they arrive conveniently in my email.

A few weeks ago after months of planning the library where I work began offering 35 e-newsletters on everything from events at the library to book lists to mysteries to new fiction. They are invaluable readers advisory tools and excellent reminders on what is coming up in the library and on the shelves.

Here are a few examples of libraries that are offering e-newsletters:

Prospect Heights Public Library

Las Vegas Library District

Arlington Heights Memorial Library

Fresno Public Library

You don't need to have a library card to subscribe, just an email address. Try out a few and then check to see if your local library offers e-newsletters as well. If you are looking for the latest news on books, music, movies and events at your library, e-newsletters are the answer!
