OverDrive Education is hitting the road this fall with a sixteen-city tour across the U.S. and Canada! Come see what we’re doing to help students to get reading.

Our experts will help you explore the possibilities of using digital content in your school—from classroom instruction to pleasure reading. We’ll guide you through some best practices and relate stories about how other schools have promoted digital reading. You’ll hear some of our favorite pro tips and get a preview of what’s coming next.

For customers and the curious alike

Whether you’re already rocking OverDrive at your school or just exploring your options, all are welcome. If you’re already the headliner for OverDrive at your school, bring some friends (teachers, admins or colleagues) and form a new band of superstars. You’ll all get to meet other rock star educators from nearby schools and learn what they’re doing to foster reading with their students.

Have you tried something at your school with great success? Or maybe there was something you tried that didn’t quite work the way you expected. Share your experiences and discover what your peers are doing. Go back to school with new tools for your OverDrive toolbox, and a commitment to become a champion for digital content in your building. Maybe you’ll even make a lasting friend in your fellow eBook aficionados and keep the conversation going through the rest of the year.
