What is Big Library Read?
Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting readers around the world who read the same eBook at the same time. Over the past year, thousands of libraries, schools and millions of people around the world have embraced the program.
Here’s how it works:
During the two-week program (March 17-31), the Big Library Read titles are available to borrow 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 to get reading in this international eBook club.
