About the Big Library Read program

Big Library Read is an opportunity for those with a valid library card to read the same digital title at the same time without any wait lists or holds. Participating in this event allows your library to offer a new simultaneous use title for community-wide access from your library at no cost. It’s a worldwide digital version of a local book club, and an opportunity for your library to generate more interest in your digital collection beyond the bestsellers. Thousands of libraries have already enjoyed great success engaging thousands of new and current users with Big Library Read.

The Big Library Read program is open to all OverDrive librarypartners worldwide. The title will automatically be added to your digital collection at the start of the program. To borrow the BLR title, your users will simply log in to your digital collection and the eBook will be prominently displayed on your OverDrive-powered website and discoverable through the digital library catalog.
