This year’s funding will be used to fuel a system-wide effort to increase the visibility of services, resources, and programs. In addition, APL Foundation has funded Patron Point, a powerful marketing technology platform which provides our public library branches with a more effective method of broadcasting services to patrons via email automation. On that note, our primary goal this fiscal year is to boost our new patron numbers and interaction rate with fresh services and communications.The Foundation has also approved funding for our rapidly growing digital collection with OverDrive. Thanks to five years of their continuous support, our downloadable eBook and audiobook collection has expanded to over 8,000 popular titles, including multilingual formats in both English and Spanish. Circulation in 2017-18 has already increased by 23% for audiobooks and 10% for eBooks since the prior fiscal year. In addition, the APL Foundation has allocated $5,000 extra to purchase award-winning and best-selling fiction and non-fiction titles to bolster our adult print collection. This healthy infusion will help keep pace with patron request lists and truly showcases our responsive collection development capabilities.A special thank you goes out to the Anaheim Public Library Foundation for supporting popular collections, innovative programming, and cutting-edge library marketing in the 2018-19 fiscal year.
