READ AN eBOOK DAY!

    

     September 18 will mark the first international “Read an eBook Day”, a day which OverDrive hopes will become an annual effort to celebrate and raise awareness for reading on tablets, smartphones, and eBook readers.   Readers are encouraged to take part in the largest digital reading event by downloading an eBook through our library!

 Overdrive will promote the day by giving away tablets and devices every hour on the Read an eBook Day website www.readanebookday.com and through social media to readers who tell their story of what eBooks mean to them.  Readers can use the hashtag #eBookDay on Facebook or Twitter to tell their story, or comment directly at www.readanebookday.com

The reading promotion event is sponsored by OverDrive, the national vendor behind Iowa’s WILBOR digital eBook/audiobook service available through the Alton Public Library!
