The NMBM Libraries will be participating on Overdrive's upcoming project the "Big Library Read". In this project one
title is selected and is made available for everybody who is a library member to
read simultaneously, no waiting list or placing of holds. This
project will run from the 16th - 30th of March 2017.
The Big Library Read program is open to all OverDrive library and school
partners worldwide. The title will automatically be added to NMBM Libraries digital
collection at the start of the program. To borrow the BLR title, users will
simply log in to NMBM Libraries digital collection (e-Media Library) and the eBook will be prominently
displayed on our OverDrive-powered website and discoverable through the digital
library catalogue. The selected title will be available on the stated dates only,
the title will then disappear from users devices on March 30, 2017.
There are opportunities for readers to comment on the title and share their
comments with others who have read the book throughout the world . FUN!
STIMULATING! ENJOYABLE!. Participants can join the conversation on www.biglibraryread.com
Posters and handouts will be distributed to all libraries.
