Join the Big Library Read and Take the OverDrive Challenge!

Help the library win $1,500 in new eBooks by meeting the OverDrive Challenge! If we download more than 7,065 eBooks in June—besting our previous monthly downloading record by 25%—OverDrive will give us $1,500 worth of new titles.

To jump-start the challenge, the library is participating in the Big Library Read, a global event sponsored by OverDrive. From June 3rd to 18th, you can download A Pedigree to Die For, the first book in Laurien Berenson’s unusual and fascinating Melanie Travis Mystery series. This is an opportunity for users from all over to read the same digital title at the same time without any wait lists or holds.

To borrow this book or any of more than 3,500 other popular titles, simply go to All you need is a valid CRRL library card and a computer, iPhone, iPad, Nook, Android phone, tablet, or Kindle. Your download will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and, best of all, there are no late fees!

Downloaded books are a perfect way to take the library with you this summer, whether you’re flying, cruising, road-tripping, or lounging poolside.
