about that e-book collection 2010

December 23, 2010

as 2010 winds down and as e-book readers as gifts ramp up, it seems a good time to share some thoughts about the first 8 months of the library’s e-book collection.

popular to say the least

we soft-launched our e-book collection last April and they’ve been a rousing success with library customers.  the checkout numbers have steadily increased throughout 2010 as the size of the collection has grown.

collection makeup

  • mostly fiction rather than nonfiction
  • includes NY Times bestsellers in fiction and nonfiction
  • award winners in several genres
  • opening day collection featured backlist titles from the library’s author standing order list.
  • large number of romance titles
