Our ebook provider, OverDrive has announced the next title for the Big Library Read project! Patrons from around the world can borrow Jane O’ Connor’s “Nancy Clancy: Super Sleuth” in eBook or audiobook form until Sept. 30th without wait lists of holds. This ‘global book club’ allows parents and children to read together and join thousands of users to read the same book at the same time!
To borrow the title simply log in to the digital
catalog page. You’ll see the title on the home page ready to checkout. A valid library card is required.
Nancy Clancy titles are great for young readers who are learning both how to
read and a love of literature. Her use of advanced vocabulary, while explaining
what the words mean, helps children grow as readers. Checking out the eBook and
audiobook will enable children and parents to listen to the title as they
follow along with the text. Big Library Read is also a great way to introduce
students and new users to your digital collection as they return to school.
If you’d like to learn more about Jane O’Connor and her
writing you can go to Overdrive’s Facebook chat
on Tuesday, Sept 24th at 9 pm (ET). You’ll be able to ask Jane anything you’d like
to know about her writing process, where Nancy Clancy came from or what we can
expect from her next! You can also join the conversation on Twitter during this
event by using the hashtag #BigLibraryRead.
