Overview

Greenwood County Library System in South Carolina, which includes three branches and a travelling bookmobile, aims to help its nearly 70,000 citizens be more connected, informed and entertained through free access to library resources, programs and services. In response to patron demand for more digital content, the library system purchased a digital magazine platform so users could read their favorite magazines on a computer or mobile device.

In January 2016, after a year of low circulation and user frustration with its first digital magazine service, Greenwood County Library made the switch to EBSCO’s Flipster product. Within the first few weeks of launching and promoting Flipster, the library saw a dramatic increase in both digital magazine circulation and patronage, registering more than 400 new library card holders in the month of May alone.
