Wowbrary Academic, Public, School, Special

Wowbrary is an email newsletter program that automatically sends your patrons a weekly newsletter, letting them know what's new at your library—new books, new dvds, new ebooks, etc.  You can ask patrons to sign up for the email newsletter, or mass enroll your patrons with email addresses.  The Wowbrary software pulls information about your library's new items from Polaris.
