Tomorrow is Read an eBook Day! Get ready for a celebration of eBooks on an international scale. On Thursday, September 18, library patrons and students will take part in the largest digital reading event to show appreciation and raise awareness for eBooks. Throughout the day, OverDrive will participate by giving away tablets and devices every hour through social media to readers who tell their eBook story on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #eBookDay. Readers can also comment directly on www.readanebookday.com. Did you know that since EBRPL first added eBooks to our catalog back in 2005, our patrons have downloaded over 725,000 ebooks? Check out an eBook and join the fun tomorrow! Don’t forget to tag us #ebrpl and #eBookDay to show us what you’re reading.
