March 14 is known around the world as Pi Day. This is a holiday dedicated to celebrating Pi, a number used in mathematics to represent the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi is famous for having been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond it’s decimal point. Lots of people like to memorize and recite a long string of these digits to celebrate (3.14159…you get) but we’re choosing to celebrate Pi day with pie!

The latest Big Library Read program kicks of Thursday and, given that Art of the Pie is the eBook everyone will be reading, what better time to promote the program than on Pi Day! If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out our Big Library Read website for promotional tools and to hear our exclusive interview with author Kate McDermott. You can also join our discussion board and get great reading guide handouts to use in your library. Join us in celebrating this “delicious” holiday as we bake our first of many pies over the next few weeks!

About the Big Library Read

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.
