Newsletters we love, pt 3

Out of the many newsletters you subscribe to, do you have one that you would consider your favorite? Multiple favorites? Do you read them because the content interests you? Are they visually appealing?

Newsletters are a great way to interact with patrons outside of the library.

Looking at other organizations’ newsletters is a great source of inspiration. We love seeing the different newsletters our LibraryAware customers create and wanted to share a few of them with you. Check out some of our favorites:

What’s happening at the Oceanside Public Library

Oceanside Public Library created What’s Happening at the Oceanside Public Library newsletter. Here’s why we love it:

  • This simple newsletter lets patrons know what’s happening for kids, teens, and adults at their library.
  • It’s a quick read. The sections aren’t loaded with information, making it easy for patrons on the go to get a sense of what’s happening.

New at the Library

County of Lennox and Addington Libraries created a New at the Library newsletter to let patrons know the new titles they can expect. Here’s what we love about this newsletter.

  • There is something for everyone. From sci-fi to historical fiction, readers are sure to find something new at this library to add to their reading list. 
  • This newsletter is eye-catching. Each header is designed with different genres in mind. In the horror and suspense section, there is a picture of Stephen King’s famously terrifying clown, Pennywise.
  • Each genre lists suggested titles along with story elements and a summary to provide readers with what to expect from the book.

YBR: Young black reader’s newsletter

Created by the Dallas Public Library, The YBR: Young black reader’s newsletter is aimed at a specific audience.  Here’s what we love:

  •  To celebrate Women’s History Month, the March/April 2019 issue features books for younger readers about black women in history.
  • This newsletter promotes diversity and recommends books that are reflective of young black readers.
  • It caters to different age groups. It has picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction books.
  • It even features an author spotlight.

Want to show off your library’s newsletter? Use the hashtag #MadeinLibraryAware when posting to Twitter or Facebook or shoot us an email.
