Vimmerby Public Library

Vimmerby Public Library (VPL) is located in beautiful Sweden, right in the Town Hall – a testament to its important role in the community. With two other locations just ten minutes away from the main library, these branches are an accessible way for the 15,000 residents of the municipality to get the information, education, and entertainment they need. Not only that, but they’re taking resources out into the community for patrons who can’t make it to branches.

We didn’t know what we were missing until we received it! Now, pressreader feels like an invaluable asset – especially for our patrons who use it from home.

Resources for every patron

Before offering pressreader, Vimmerby had a huge amount of traditional media for their patrons to take advantage of. For those who loved coming into the library and flipping through physical copies, this was a great option. But patrons who wanted to read at home, or who preferred digital amenities were left out of the conversation.

pressreader and VPL began working together in early 2019, and that quickly changed. The library became a central hub for both traditional and digital resources – so every patron could find what they needed, in the format they were most comfortable with.

VPL’s patrons are now reading over 1,000 articles through pressreader every single month. With the COVID-19 global pandemic becoming a reality in 2020, digital resources became an especially important resource to the library and their patrons.

pressreader’s impact at Vimmerby Public Library

pressreader’s platform made it possible for VPL to serve their patrons in a more well-rounded and effective way, giving patrons of every age, language and background a chance to find exactly what they were looking for, or discover something entirely new!

Many patrons also use pressreader as a tool to develop new and old hobbies and catch up on interests. Because every patron is different, pressreader’s wide variety of features is here to serve their unique needs. From translation and listening to keyword searches, there’s something for everyone!
