Subject: FW: Introducing Loan Stars: the New National Readers¹ Advisory Initiative


Hello all, I have been asked if we could distribute to The Partnership. Please consider forwarding to your members. Thanks,


Loan Stars is the new readers’ advisory service that allows library staff across Canada to collaboratively select their favourite forthcoming books. Using CataList, the online catalogue tool available free to libraries, library staff can nominate their favourite picks, the most popular of which will be marketed to libraries and library users alike. Loan Stars takes its lead from the US libraries and their Library Reads initiative.


Please see the attached flyer for more information and instructions on how to sign up to receive notifications. You are encouraged to share this post with libraries in your provinces and territories and they are encouraged to share it with all staff. More information will be shared as we move closer to the launch in January 2016


Please excuse any cross-posting.
