Library Connect has been promoting the Apps for Library Idea Challenge past few months on Facebook and Twitter. The Apps for Library Idea Challenge was launched to get librarians discussing user problems or needs and then creating methods to help solve them. Librarians from around the world submitted 40 app ideas and now the field has narrowed down to the 10 finalists.

It is now time for librarians to comment on these 10 finalists. Comments can be made from now until October 14th. Not only will your comments help support the ideas but all those who made comments are eligible to be entered in a drawing for a gift card. After the comments, voting for the favorite app idea will happen between October 17 – October 28 with the winner to be announce in early November.
