Find this Awesome Box at the Service Desk at NOPL at N. Syracuse.
What is Awesome Box? It is a small box that contains items that people have read, watched or listened to that they “found helpful, entertaining, or mind-blowing.”
Awesome Box was conceived of by the Harvard Law Library Innovation Lab and piloted by libraries on the Harvard campus. Currently there are over 300 libraries in the United States that have Awesome Boxes.
How does it work? Let’s say you read a fantastic book; bring the book back into the library so the clerk can check it in and remove it from your library card first. Let the clerk know what a great book it was and that you’d like to recommend it to others by placing it in the Awesome Box. If the item belongs to the NOPL at North Syracuse library, the clerk will give the book prime real estate on the checkout counter by placing it front-and-center in the Awesome Box for others to see. When someone comes in looking for their next great read, they will be able to grab it out of the Awesome Box to be checked out. Below is a widget showing the latest awesome items posted online, and you can also visit noplns.awesomebox.io to view a full history of what others have recommended.
Stop by NOPL at North Syracuse and let us know what you’ve read, watched or listened to that is awesome and share in building this “collection curated by the community.”
