What Is Wowbrary?

Wowbrary is a new service that sends you free, weekly emails featuring the MidPointe Library System's most recent acquisitions. You can be among the first to know about all of the wonderful new books, DVDs, and CDs that the Library acquires each week.

Wowbrary sends you an email every Saturday about MidPointe's newest books, movies and music and makes it easy for you to browse through the latest additions and place a hold on a new title.

What Does the Wowbrary Email Look Like?

The middle section of the Wowbrary email shows the top 20 items that have been added that week. This list include bestsellers, DVDs that have been recently released, CDs, and children's books. Each item includes a picture of the cover and a description. There is a box next to the title for more information or to put a hold on the book. In the left column, you can click on your favorite categories such as DVDs, Computer and Internet, Health, Mind and Body, Mysteries and Thrillers, Children's Books, or Teen.

How Can You Sign Up?

Click here to sign up for weekly Wowbrary emails from the MidPointe Library System. You will enter your email address twice and then receive an email which will require confirmation via a web link. You will then be registered for Wowbrary emails!

Like all offerings from the MidPointe Library System, the Wowbrary service is free.

Amazon and Wowbrary

The Wowbrary emails will display Amazon customer ratings (1 to 5 yellow stars) and number of reviews for all items with such ratings available. The rating stars will also appear for the past weeks' items ("Previous Week"). These ratings and reviews are available by clicking on the "Review" button in the emails. This feature makes ratings and reviews far more visible, by prominently displaying the average number of stars awarded and the number of customer reviews, with a hyperlink directly to these reviews.

If you shop online at Amazon, your purchases can benefit the MidPointe Library System. At the top of the Wowbrary homepage are the words "Support the MidPointe Library System for free by clicking here when starting your Amazon shopping." Click there and the Library will receive 3.75% of everything you spend on Amazon. We appreciate and thank you for the use of this tool, but utilizing this service is not required to take advantage of the Wowbrary service.
