Million Checkout Club Update - August Edition

We still have a few weeks of summer left before fall officially starts on September 22, so if you haven't finished your summer reading list there's still time! Regardless of how many books you checked off your to-read list, congratulation on over 2.6 million OverDrive checkouts in 2017.

Last year 49 OverDrive library collections hit one million checkouts, with KCLS in the top 5 who reached 3 million. But records are made to be broken and we're still looking to beat the 3.4 million checkouts we had in 2016! Take a minute to pat yourself on the back for reading KCLS over the edge and into the Two Million Checkout Club.
