Worldwide eBook Club

Shakespeare Saved my Life by Laura Bates

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting readers around the world who read the same eBook, and listen to the same audiobook at the same time. Here’s how it works:  Program sponsor OverDrive teams with a noted eBook publisher to make a popular eBook available to public libraries and schools for lending.

During the two-week program, March 17 – March 31, the Big Library Read title is available for checkout through participating libraries and schools.  It’s free, and there’s never a waiting list during the program. All you need is a library card (or student ID) to join the global eBook club.
