It wasn't me - I'm just a patron of the public library (I'm not a public
librarian, I just play one at the university). My impression is that it
doesn't have lot of uptake but a few loyal enthusiasts, which I guess is
typical of personalized services on library websites. I don't know what
administrative arrangements they've made - whether the submissions are
screened, and if so by whom and how. I can put you in touch with the
webmaster if you'd like to follow up.

Peter, very nice! Thank you for sharing. In general, do you get the
impression the review service is well received by your patrons?
