Example quotes others have used in the past:
We're excited to be able to offer BookBrowse to our patrons because it's so easy to use, and filled with such great content. Because patrons can also access it outside of the library, it's the next best thing to having your own personal librarian.
BookBrowse makes it easy and fun to find that next great read , and then reserve it at [your library's name] with just a few clicks. I love using BookBrowse, and we know our patrons will, too.
