For libraries also participating in OverDrive’s upcoming Big Library Read (Oct. 12 – 26), please note that OverDrive cannot display both titles on your site at the same time.

We are very excited to be able to coordinate this with a fellow agency of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport – it’s a great opportunity to promote the work of an award-winning Ontario author during Ontario Public Library Week.
