BONUS: How to Stop Losing Our Emails In Your Inbox
Patrons with Gmail accounts: Are emails from the Louttit Library getting lost under other emails? Are our newsletters ending up in your "promotions" tab or in other sections of your inbox? Here are two ways--according to MailChimp, our newsletter application--to make sure you aren't missing out on learning about our newest programs and resources:
  • Add Louttit's "From" email address to Google Contacts
    Emails from a subscriber's Google Contacts always go to their Primary inbox. When you receive a newsletter from us, add our "From" email address to your Google Contacts.
  • Move Louttit's emails to the Primary tab
    Subscribers can teach Gmail where to deliver messages. When a subscriber moves one of our campaigns from the Promotions tab to the Primary tab, Gmail asks whether it should always deliver Louttit's campaigns there. Simply drag and drop the Louttit newsletters to your Primary tab!
