Big Library Read (BLR), facilitated by OverDrive, is a reading program that connects readers around the world with the same ebook at the same time without any wait lists or holds. It’s easy to join this worldwide digital version of a local book club, and the program’s free through the La Porte County Public Library OverDrive-powered site or Libby app – all you need to get started reading is a library card.
For those new to BLR, this book club happens three times a year and involves a wide variety of titles. OverDrive aims to provide at least one title in nonfiction, adult fiction and young adult fiction throughout the year.
The first BLR title for this year is The Art of Taking It Easy by comedian and psychologist Dr. Brian King. In his hilarious book, Dr. King encourages readers to embrace humor to reduce stress and live a happier, fuller life.
This title will be available for unlimited access between April 5 – 19 for the duration of the lending period.
Be sure to also save the dates for all of our BLR events this year:
- Monday, June 28 – Monday, July 12
- Monday, November 1 – Monday, November 15
