Jordan Fields, Aspen Product Librarian for ByWater Solutions, recently commented on the implementation.
Lisa Breton from Rye Public Library was really fun to work with! She really wanted to make a splash with her Aspen launch, so she timed it for Library Appreciation Week and I'm sure her community appreciates her because they also went fine free at the same time!
Rye decided to keep it simple with their Browse Categories, but added lots of subcategories - 13 on their New Adult browse category!
