We’re cooking up something fresh as the next installment of the global eBook club will be a culinary delight. Voting is now live for the world’s largest digital reading event when millions of library users from around the world will have access to the same book at the same time. This time around the genre is cook books (apologies for the earlier pun) and we want you and your readers to decide what book gets chosen.
Voting will only be open until January 23, so be sure to pick your favorite 3 titles of the available options on our voting page. Shortly there after we’ll announce the winner and provide links to marketing materials to help spread the word around your community.
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.
