This morning the latest Big Library Read title was rolled out to users of more than 6,500 libraries. Patrons from around the world can borrow Jane O’ Connor’s “Nancy Clancy: Super Sleuth” in eBook or audiobook form until Sept. 30th without wait lists of holds. This ‘global book club’ allows parents and children to read together and join thousands of users to read the same book at the same time! To borrow the title simply log in to your library’s digital collection. You’ll see the title on the home page ready to checkout.
Jane O’Connor’s Nancy Clancy titles are great for young readers who are learning both how to read and a love of literature. Her use of advanced vocabulary, while explaining what the words mean, helps children grow as readers. Checking out the eBook and audiobook will enable children and parents to listen to the title as they follow along with the text. Big Library Read is also a great way to introduce students and new users to your digital collection as they return to school.
