Big Library Read

big readThe 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 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! The eBook will be available in the eMedia Catalog shortly. Watch our eRead Me Vegas blog for the announcement of availability.

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 available which you are welcome to begin reading now.
