Bridgerton in Libraries: How Libraries Tap Into the Zeitgeist Even When Denied Access
by Brandi Scardilli
In October 2021, Bibliotheca unveiled the new library streaming service biblio+. It has a respectable selection so far, but it doesn't have the buzzed-about hits that commercial streaming services put out. Take Bridgerton, for example, which is a Netflix show based on a book series by Julia Quinn. Librarians are finding ways to connect with their patrons about this wildly popular show, even if they can't necessarily hand them DVDs of it or recommend it as part of their streaming collection. In this article, librarians explain why they're Bridgerton fans and want to share it with their community. You'll learn some of the ways librarians promote the show and the books, often alongside their existing romance collections.
