KAMLOOPS - The TNRD Library System is taking part in a virtual, global eBook club — Overdrive’s Big Library Read program — which features two eBooks.

Library card holders will be able to borrow and read The Door in the Hedge by Robin McKinley and/or In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters until Wednesday, October 21, by visiting

“This is a great opportunity for us to participate in an eBook club that has a global scale,” Marc Saunders, TNRD Director of Libraries, said.

Big Library Read is an international program that gives libraries and library patrons unlimited simultaneous access to a popular title during the program dates, creating a virtual, global eBook club. Interested patrons will be able borrow The Door in the Hedge and In the Shadow of Blackbirds using a valid library card, and read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets without worrying about wait lists or holds. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and best of all, there are no late fees.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, the leading supplier of eBooks, audiobooks and more to libraries and schools; Open Road, publisher of Robin McKinley’s fairy tale short stories; and Abrams Books, publisher of Cat Winters young adult historical fiction.
