OverDrive’s Big Library Read

From September 16th through 30th, the Ridgefield Library will be participating in a Big Library Read sponsored by OverDrive, the library’s platform for accessing eBooks and downloadable audiobooks. 
This year’s Big Library Read is geared toward fans of juvenile fiction and will feature “Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth,” Book 1 of Jane O’Connor’s new chapter book series based on the popular “Fancy Nancy” picture books. For these two weeks, this title will be offered for simultaneous download by any Ridgefield Library cardholder.   What this means is that access to both the eBook and downloadable audiobook versions will be available to multiple users for immediate download with no waitlists or holds.  Praised by Booklist as “a delightful story of dress-up and cozy family love,” the book will be offered in formats compatible with most computers, tablets and smartphones and accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection.

If you’ve been meaning to explore the eBook format with a special child in your life, this is the perfect opportunity to do so.  During OverDrive’s Big Library Read, “Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth” will be prominently featured on our website.  And, if you’re a new user of our OverDrive service, the library staff is eager to help you get started enjoying our eBook and downloadable audiobook offerings.
