Free Resources for Libraries to Promote the Libraries Transform Book Pick

 

Libraries Transform Book Pick

The Libraries Transform Book Pick is a new digital reading program that connects readers nationwide by offering free access to the same ebook through public libraries.  

At the same time, it gives public libraries and the professionals working there opportunities to engage with readers about the ebook, as well as showcase digital collections and other library resources and programs.  

All public libraries in the U.S. currently participating in OverDrive will be able to lend unlimited copies of the ebook to borrowers during the reading period October 7-21, 2019, which makes it a great pick for a book club.
