September is here, bringing with it another Read an Ebook Day! Recognized every September 18, Read an Ebook Day is an opportunity for readers from all over the globe to come together and celebrate their love of reading. Ebooks enable you to take the stories and authors you love with you anytime, anywhere. And while we’ve all spent much of the past year and a half at home, we still have access to thousands of ebooks from the library. Thanks to #EbookLove, your next great read is only a tap away.

Libraries and schools can win free content credit

Library and school partners can win one of several $500 content credits from OverDrive just by using the hashtag #EbookLove on social media to celebrate the holiday. Feel free to share photos of your staff on Instagram, book recommendations from your librarians on Twitter, or fun Tik Tok videos of why you love ebooks!

No matter what you choose to share or what social media channel you use, add the hashtag #EbookLove to the message for a chance to win. We’ll notify the randomly selected library and school partners on Monday, September 20th. This is a global holiday, so any partner from anywhere in the world can join in and win!

Share your #ebookLove

Readers can also win exciting Libby and Sora apparel by using the #EbookLove hashtag on social media to share what they’ll be reading and how they’re celebrating Read an Ebook Day. Several lucky people will be chosen at random and send promo codes to select whatever Libby or Sora swag they’d like to get from the OverDrive Shop.

Whether you’re borrowing an ebook for the first time this year or you average several a week, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating Read an Ebook Day on September 18th. The best part is that you don’t even need to leave your couch to participate. Just borrow an ebook or pull up your current read, sit back, and enjoy!
