Shop our Chinese Content Sale and be entered to win a free Chinese book club from OverDrive
October 1 is National Day of the People’s Republic of China, and 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In celebration, we have our Fall Chinese Content Sale! Between now and October 31, you can save up to 50% on thousands of Chinese language titles.
Not sure where to start? We’ve put together some lists for you, starting with the new releases list. There is also the most popular adult, bestselling juvenile & young adult, and Read-Alongs, offering a taste of contemporary Chinese literature and re-discovering stories that inspired and influenced generations of Chinese readers.
Along with creating categories for you to shop from, we have also broken out the sale items into simplified and traditional Chinese for easier shopping. For those patrons who prefer audiobooks, there is a Mandarin audiobook list as well.
Libraries who shop the sale will be entered into a raffle. We will award three winners with a free Chinese book club for their OverDrive site (winning libraries will be allowed to choose from six titles). The title will be added to your OverDrive site for one month with sim use lending at absolutely no cost to you. This is the first time OverDrive has ever sponsored a Chinese Book Club like this, but you can only win if you shop the sale.
If you win, you will be allowed to choose from one of the following books:
