What is ‘Now Read This’?
Now Read This is a new book club offered jointly from the PBS NewsHour and The New York Times. Every month, we’ll pick a book that helps us makes sense of the world we’re living in — fiction, history, memoir, and more.
Big Library Read is an opportunity for those with a valid library card to read the same digital title at the same time without any wait lists or holds. Participating in this event allows your library to offer a new simultaneous use title for community-wide access from your library at no cost. It’s a worldwide digital version of a local book club, and an opportunity for your library to generate more interest in your digital collection beyond the bestsellers. Thousands of libraries have already enjoyed great success engaging thousands of new and current users with Big Library Read.
