Always Available Titles

The Always Available titles do not have checkout limitations. That means they can be used for simultaneous reading. If you are interested in creating a digital book club or having your class read from the same book at the same time, this is a great place to start.

The Big Library Read

The BLR is an awesome simultaneous reading opportunity for HS students!


One way to bring your students together during this time is with the next Big Library Read, which started one week early. Previously, the next global ebook club was going to start on Monday, March 30. But in light of everything happening with COVID-19, and knowing your users are turning to your OverDrive site, BLR has started (Monday, March 23).


Our global ebook club is an opportunity for readers all around the world to read the same book at the same time without waitlists or holds. From March 23 – April 13, comedian Michael McCreary’s memoir Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic will be available in both ebook and audiobook formats.
