when was the last time you had this kind of response to a new library service?

Brian didn’t give me permission to publish a portion of his email, but I’m so excited about it I’m going to throw caution into the wind. He wrote [emphasis mine]:

Rule number 1: Don’t send out IM reference fliers to every middle school and jr. high classroom on the same day!

Had to have been at least 100 IMs in the first 2 hours after the kiddies got home. For a while, I had about 20 IM windows up at once.

I’m at a loss for words thinking about how outstanding these numbers are. I look forward to hearing how this will play out in the future. Congrats Brian and Homer Township Library!

  1. From our list of recent buddies at the end of yesterday, it looks like I exaggerated a bit in my email to Aaron. The true stat is more like 75 IMs in the first 2 hours, and more than 100 IMs for the entire afternoon and evening. Still an impressive response and insane day at the ref desk.
