... versatile tool for innovative community outreach.

Shoutbomb is not only a simple and effective means of communication for our Montana Shared Catalog consortium, but also a versatile tool for innovative community outreach. We have used Shoutbomb to share early literacy tips with parents of incoming Kindergarteners across the state and received overwhelmingly positive feedback on the effectiveness of this direct support in building parents’ confidence and children’s literacy skills.

...it’s is like my personal assistant for the library.

I’m always telling people at our libraries that I love Shoutbomb, it’s is like my personal assistant for the library. I love that I can keep track of my entire family’s items all from one account.
I’m sure our libraries think I’m trying to push this product, but that is actually my opinion as a library patron.

On a professional level I would like to add that Shoutbomb is reasonably priced with great support. It’s great to get that personal touch with any of our questions we may have.

Renée Palermo, ILS Manager, Ocean State Libraries
