EngagedPatrons and Boopsie

By now you have likely heard that web developers at Boopsie are creating smartphone apps for libraries. The apps are a bit pricey, but very cool. If your library is considering an app from Boopsie your events listings can easily be integrated into the product. They use RSS for events listings so you can show listings by location, age group or custom event type, if you use those in your calendar.

Tell My Library Story at Port Townsend PL

Port Townsend (WA) Public Library is featuring EP's Tell My Library Story service on their website and getting some absolutely wonderful responses from their patrons. Definately "show to your stakeholders" material and a great morale booster for library staff to see how much their work is appreciated. If you could use a boost, take a look at http://engagedpatrons.org/TellMyLibraryStory.cfm?SiteID=6359 and click on Show All Stories.

New! Engaged Readers (beta)
Introducing Engaged Readers, the first online reading program for public libraries with fully-integrated social networking features.

Keep your readers engaged in their reading by letting them interact with other readers and library staff as they create and share book lists, reviews, comments, follow fellow readers and more.

Engaged Readers can be implemented as the online facet of your summer or winter reading program or offered year-around. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

This service is currently in beta testing at: <a href="http://engagedpatrons.org/beta">http://engagedpatrons.org/beta</a>. Watch this space for an announcement that the service is ready to go or leave your email on the beta page to get notified.
