Free Resources for Libraries to Promote the Libraries Transform Book Pick
The Libraries Transform Book Pick is a popular digital reading program that connects readers nationwide by offering free access to the same ebook through public libraries.
At the same time, it gives public libraries and the professionals working there opportunities to engage with readers about the ebook, as well as showcase digital collections and other library resources and programs.
All public libraries in the U.S. currently participating in OverDrive will be able to lend unlimited copies of the ebook to borrowers during the reading period September 14-28, 2020, which makes it a great pick for a book club.
“We chose Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma because it is a strikingly original and richly compelling historical novel which illuminates the roots of America’s dire systemic racism. Francis-Sharma’s profoundly relevant saga will surely inspire meaningful discussions. Book of the Little Axe is also exquisitely well-written, and features a strong and fascinating woman protagonist.”
— Donna Seaman, Editor, Adult Books, Booklist
