ALA and OverDrive Start a Digital Reading Program

OverDrive, ALA’s Libraries Transform initiative, and ALA’s Booklist magazine collaborated to introduce a digital reading program, the Libraries Transform Book Pick. From Oct. 7 to 21, 2019, readers with a library card can borrow, via OverDrive’s Libby, an ebook copy of After the Flood, by Kassandra Montag, from their public library without waitlists or holds.

According to the press release, “The Libraries Transform Book Pick program is designed to connect readers across the U.S. with the selected ebook simultaneously through their public libraries to generate conversation across communities. A book guide and other materials to help book clubs and readers foster conversation are also available.”

Use #LTBookPick on social media.

For more information, read the press release.
