cloudLibrary Pledges are Here!

Every year, we ask AspenCat Member Libraries to pledge money for the upcoming year, so that we ensure your patrons have access to a wide variety of eBooks and eAudiobooks. This year, with many of your patrons continuing to stay home more and explore our Pay Per Use collection, that pledge is even more important. If you do not know much about cloudLibrary or do not see the benefit to your patrons, please see the following fast facts!

Turkey Takeover

When turkeys aren’t just hanging out in the oven/sauna for 2 to 2.5 hours at 325 degrees, they’re looking for a bargain. Because turkeys are notoriously thrifty.Happy Thanksgiving Day! (Turkey waving)

CLiC’s money-saving deals are all the rage among the entire poultry community. We see turkeys subscribing to EBSCO databases, chickens licensing Pebble Go Next, and pheasants doing research through Infobase products.

Take from us — e-resource products really are for the birds.
