Big Library Read is a global eBook reading club. What happens is OverDrive gets a specific title and for participating libraries our digital copy gets unlimited access. Instead of one patron reading at a time multiple people can have that title downloaded. They change the genre so it’s not always nonfiction and not always something that draws more toward the 18+ reader base. So if nonfiction isn’t your thing don’t worry. Just wait it out and look for what the next Big Library Read will be.
American Sniper is also available in physical format at EPL.
Already read the book? EPL has the DVD in our collection. Looking for a different perspective? Taya Kyle, wife of American sniper Chris Kyle, wrote a book titled American Wife talking about his military service, how they made it through the best-selling book and movie, and life with and without Chris by her side. American Wife is also available as an eBook on NIDL.
Big Library Read runs through the 31st of March, but if the book is in our collection you can always check out the item or place it on hold if it’s already out.
Heather: History and military reads aren’t my particular cup of tea, so I’ll be sitting this round of Big Library Read out, but don’t let that stop you from telling library staff what you love (or hate) about this title or any item. If you enjoy it and want similar items our staff will be happy to help you find something, whether or not it’s a genre we enjoy ourselves.
