Newly released case study explores how reading program management tool supports library of thousands
Madison, WI – November 17, 2016 – Evanced, the market-leading creator of web-enabled library services, has released a new case study that highlights how their summer reading program management tool Wandoo Reader is flexible enough to support libraries of all sizes. While some of the largest library systems in the country also use the tool to offer a consistent reading program across their large footprints, this case study focuses on how Louisville (OH) Public Library leverages Wandoo Reader to engage its tight-knit community.
Louisville Public Library serves the residents of Nimishillen Township and the city of Louisville, a community of approximately 10,000. “Though our community is on the smaller end, we still struggled with offering staff a way to keep track of progress and accomplishments. That kept us from being able engage as many patrons as possible,” shared Deborah Long, Louisville Public Library’s Adult & Teen Services Manager. To learn more about how the library used Wandoo Reader to triple their teen and adult registrations for their summer reading program, view the full case study here.
“While the top 25 largest U.S. public libraries serve an excess of 1 million people, 80% of U.S. public libraries serve populations of under 25,000. One thing that these libraries, no matter their size, have in common is that most of them offer a summer reading program,” shared Mary Casey, Evanced’s Marketing Director. “We hope that Louisville’s success inspires libraries of all sizes to re-imagine the potential of their summer and year-round reading programs. Deborah Long proves that with the right data, you can transform your community and Wandoo Reader provides just that — plus a user-friendly, engaging interface for readers of all ages.”
