You may notice something new at the Circulation Desk in early May: the Howe Library Awesome Box.
The Awesome Box is a way for you to share books, CDs, and DVDs that you enjoyed with other patrons. It doesn't matter what format it's in or what age it's aimed at; if it's awesome, we want to know. Just return your item to this "Awesome Box" or tuck a "Howe Awesome!" bookmark in the item when you bring it back. We'll keep a list of everything that has been returned in this way.
You can see what's "Recently Awesome" by:
- visiting the "Howe Awesome" website at http://howe.awesomebox.io/
- following @howeawesome on Twitter
or liking Howe Library on Facebook
- picking up a printed list near the Awesome Box
- signing up to get lists e-mailed to you through our "New Books In Your Inbox" service
- looking for "Howe Awesome!" stickers on materials in the library
Howe Library's Awesome Box is inspired by, and presented in collaboration with, the Harvard Library Innovation Lab.
