On August 15th, OverDrive announced the next Big Library Read, ‘Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth.’ Since then over 4,000 libraries from six countries have signed up to be a part of this global digital book club. Big Library Read is free to libraries and schools during the program (September 16th-30th) and enables users to check out the eBook or audiobook version of Jane O’Connor’s popular title simultaneously without waitlists or holds. This program allows parents and children to read together and join users from around the world to read the same book at the same time!
Jane O’Connor’s Nancy Clancy titles are great for young readers who are learning both vocabulary and a love of literature. Checking out the eBook and audiobook will enable children to listen to the title as they follow along with the text. Audiobooks can help with knowledge retention and are useful for providing a better understanding of sentence structure and flow. Big Library Read assists libraries and schools in fostering a love of reading in young users by taking advantage of the technology they are already using. Kick off your back to school reading programs by having your students read the same book, at the same time.
