For those wanting to participate in summer reading but are traveling or just too busy to make it to a library branch for a book, there’s another way.
OverDrive, the ebook and audiobook provider, has some recommended books for young readers as part of their OverDrive Summer Read program beginning June 6. Access OverDrive through MyEpl.org or by downloading their app and entering your library card information.
The books are available for free for library users using their library card or a student ecard. This way there’s nothing to return and plenty of great books to read.
According to OverDrive the books are a collection for juvenile readers, which skew younger and a collection for young adults. The books should appeal to boys and girls.
The juvenile collection includes a book about Spongebob Squarepants, a book from The Last Airbender universe, Modo, who appeared in the The Hunchback Assignments and more.
The young adult collection, for middle and high school readers, includes a book about a tree that reveals hidden truths, a book about a vanished mother, another about a mysterious camp and more.
Reading Rocks this summer and there are great prizes, such as Taylor Swift concert tickets or a Nintendo Switch up for grabs but reading is the only way to enter to win.
With OverDrive, that won’t be an issue, offering plenty of titles right at young fingertips so that a book is just a click away.
