Big Library Read is returning June 12 and we want you and your readers to help choose what title the world will be reading. If you visit the Big Library Read website this week you can take our quick survey to vote on what title readers from around the world will be enjoying at the same time this summer. On the voting page you’ll find eight different options to choose from and we want to know which ones you are most excited to read. This is the perfect time to let your voice be heard and help determine the latest selection for our global Digital Book Club.
About Big Library Read
Big Library Read is an opportunity for those with a valid library card to read the same digital title at the same time without any wait lists or holds. Participating in this event allows your library to offer a new simultaneous use title for community-wide access from your library at no cost. It’s a worldwide digital version of a local book club, and an opportunity for your library to generate more interest in your digital collection beyond the bestsellers. Thousands of libraries have already enjoyed great success engaging thousands of new and current users with Big Library Read.
The Big Library Read program is open to all OverDrive library and school partners worldwide. The title will automatically be added to your digital collection at the start of the program(*). To borrow the BLR title, your users will simply log in to your digital collection and the eBook will be prominently displayed on your OverDrive-powered website and discoverable through the digital library catalog.
*Participation in the Big Library Read Program is on an opt-out basis.
