It’s already, somehow, September 11th, and that means Read an Ebook Day is only a week away! Every year since 2014, on September 18th, schools and libraries celebrate the joys of digital reading. This year has brought so many challenges to so many, and while there’s always reason to celebrate digital reading, now feels more important than ever.

Ensure your patrons know Read an Ebook Day is coming with this Read an Ebook Day Marketing Kit. In it, you’ll find engaging graphics to share on social and a printable, informative flyer.

Speaking of social, throughout the day on Read an Ebook Day, OverDrive will be posting fun facts about digital reading on social media and sharing what everyone is reading.

Readers can use the hashtag #ebookLove to tell the world what ebook they’re enjoying for a chance to win free Libby apparel from Anyone who uses the hashtag is entered to win and we’ll randomly select several winners and send them a box of Libby swag!

Take some time to read on September 18th, because it’s important and it matters, but also because you (yes, you!) deserve a break. We’re thrilled to be able to offer digital reading solutions, always, but we’re especially grateful to be able to in 2020. We hope you’ll share in the #ebooklove on Read an Ebook Day and we’ll hopefully “see” you reading, then!
