BIG LIBRARY READ by Overdrive/Libby App

Online Bookclub Sponsored by Overdrive

BIG LIBRARY READ allows us to all read the same book at the same time without a wait list or placing a hold. Cowboy Pride by Lacy Williams was selected as the latest Big Library Read. It’s a wild west version of Pride and Prejudice with dual love stories. It was selected through popular vote by OverDrive readers from around the world and we can’t wait for you to read it.
