Big Library Read going on in The Dalles

— The Dalles-Wasco County Library is encouraging its members to take part in the Big Library Read.

This pilot program allows millions of patrons from more than 7,500 participating libraries to simultaneously read Michael Malone’s critically-acclaimed “Four Corners of the Sky” in OverDrive Read, Kindle and EPUB formats.

Unlimited ebook copies of the eBook are now available to check out through the Baker County Library’s digital catalog “Library2Go.”

Big Library Read enables users from 10 different countries on five different continents to join in one of the largest global reading events ever to occur. From now until June 1, users will be able to log in to their digital library website and check out this tale about love, secrets and the mysterious bonds only families can form.

The Dalles-Wasco County Public Library patrons have access to Library2Go through the LEO Listens member group. Library2Go eBooks can be read on a computer, eBook reader, or mobile devices such as tablets or smart phones. Contact the library for help with using the digital library collection.

During the campaign, discussion questions will be posted on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. There will be a worldwide conversation using hashtag “#BigLibraryRead.”

Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, the book’s publisher, Sourcebooks, will host a live Facebook chat with author Michael Malone, enabling readers to have their questions answered in real time.

This program is the first of its kind, so head to te library’s digital collection at library2go.lib.over to check out the title and join the #BigLibraryRead conversation.
