Flipster Promo Kit

Flipster online magazines are now available! This cooperatively-purchased resource can be accessed by patrons in two ways:

We recommend placing the general access URL on your library website. Patrons may then access Flipster from any home computer if they do not use a version of the smartphone app. When clicking on the general access URL, patrons will be required to enter their library barcode and pin. This will redirect them to a library-specific Flipster page (the reason for this is to allow usage statistics to be gathered for each library). This process should be invisible to the patron, and a “getting started” guide is available for patrons and staff.

Lots of promo materials are available:

  • Access the full promo kit (.zip file contains a ton of graphics, informational materials, icons, etc.)

  • Promotional Video (use for social media posts or any way you like)

  • Sample social media posting text (pair any of these with image content from the promo kit file above):
