September is here and so is a new school year! Many of our partners have started investing heavily in kids and teen content and seen terrific circulation numbers as a result. Our Back to School Sale is going on through the end of the month, making September the perfect time to maximize your budget and save big on juvenile and young adult titles.

With 20,000 titles available up to 50% off, we know that it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why our collection development librarians have created a Staff Picks list. Hand-curated, this list is a fantastic way to see what team OverDrive recommends from the Back to School Sale. It includes juvenile and young adult fiction and nonfiction, meaning there’s something for everyone!

Be sure to visit Marketplace to find more featured lists to make your shopping a little easier. We have sale titles broken out by subject including science, history, math, coding and classics. There are picture books for the youngest bookworms and test prep guides for those high schoolers looking ahead to college. Save on 2019 Releases or go beyond the bestsellers to find titles you may have missed.

We all know that one of the best things about borrowing books through OverDrive is that nobody has to know what you’re reading. Whether it’s tough topics or books on bullying and self-esteem, libraries have always been a safe space for kids and teens to find books on subjects they’re inquisitive about but don’t want anyone else to know. These lists are ideal for building up collections the kids and teens in your community can turn to.
