The Big Library Read is a “global eBook club,” connecting readers around the world who read the same eBook at the same time. The 2019 spring selection is:   Homes by Abu Bakr al Rabeeah. This book is the remarkable true story of how a young boy emerged from a war zone and found safety in Canada .   

The Big Library Read runs from April 1 through 15, and during this time OverDrive offers unlimited checkouts on the title. No hold list and no waiting!

Learn to meditate and relax through the end of winter with the kit's how-to book on meditation and relaxing music CD. Tired of the gray Michigan skies?
