The new Big Library Read initiative is a joint effort between Sourcebooks,
OverDrive and public libraries worldwide. It’s a unique program (May
15-June 1) designed to unite the world in reading the same eBook title
at the same time and to demonstrate the influence library
patrons (you) can have. We already know the power of libraries – this is a
unique way to let the rest of the world know!
Excitement is building….since last week, over 2,000 libraries have
opted-in to participate in this event from 8 different countries – on 4
continents! Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, North Las Vegas
Library and Boulder City Library are three of those libraries!
The eBook for this pilot is Four Corners of the Sky (click to get your copy of the eBook) by Michael Malone. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Malone, every member of the community (with a valid library card) can read the eBook at the same time at no cost to the library!
If you don’t want to read the eBook version you can still participate with the print version! There are limited copies of The Four Corners of the Sky (click to reserve the print copy) available which you are welcome to begin reading now.
