We want to know, Was it AWESOME?

awesomeHave you borrowed something from the library (a book, a CD, a DVD) that was especially amazing, useful or entertaining? When you return it, we’d like you to place it in the AWESOME Box. When we scan the item back in, the title will upload to a page of shared recommendations that other readers can view.  http://pittsfieldlibrary.awesomebox.io/

Don’t worry:  placing an item in the AWESOME Box does indeed return the item to the library for removal from your library account, just as when returns are made to the library book drops. And while items that are AWESOME are shared online for general viewing, information about who borrowed or suggested  the item is, as always, confidential. AWESOME Boxes are located at both the Children’s Library Desk and the Main Floor Adult Circulation Department.

The AWESOME Box is supported by the Harvard Library Innovation Lab, the Harvard Library Lab, and the Arcadia Fund.

Share something awesome today!
