What Is Wowbrary?

Wowbrary is a new service that sends you free, weekly emails and RSS Feeds featuring the Newington Library'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 the Newington Library'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.

Amazon and Wowbrary

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. .
