Big Library Read OverDrive Program

Big Library Read


The Big Library Read initiative is a joint effort between OverDrive and public libraries worldwide.  It’s a unique program designed to unite the world in reading the same eBook title at the same time.

The book, "Four Corners of the Sky", by author Michael Malone, will be accessible to all participating libraries’ patrons worldwide, including Kyle Public Library patrons, through our free e-book lending service, Central Texas Digital Consortium.  Starting May 15 through June 1, it will be available simultaneously to all library users free of charge on our Overdrive page. All you need is your Kyle Public Library card and PIN.

The "Four Corners of the Sky" is master storyteller Michael Malone’s novel of love, secrets, and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others…or a gift we give ourselves?

The program is sponsored by OverDrive, with initial support and participation from Sourcebooks, Inc., a leading US independent publisher.  Your participation can help show publishers the value of making eBooks available to public libraries!
