The Big Library Read is here!

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting people around the world who read the same eBook (or listen to the audiobook) at the same time! The new selection is The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict!BLROtherEinstein


Here’s a quick summary from the publisher:

Mitza Maric was always a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds would be married with childrenby now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and they form a partnership of the mind and the heart. But there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage … The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Albert Einstein’s enormous shadow.


June 12-26, 2017, unlimited copies of the book are available for checkout through OverDrive! Just visit Delco.Overdrive.com (you’ll need a Delaware County Library System card for this one), and borrow the Big Library Read today! BigLibraryRead.jpg

The Big Library Read is Here!

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting people around the world who read the same eBook (or listen to the audiobook) at the same time! The new selection is This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp!whereitends


Here’s a quick summary from the publisher:

10:00 a.m. The principal of Opportunity High School finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m. The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

10:03 a.m. The auditorium doors won’t open.

10:05 a.m. Someone starts shooting.

Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival. Everyone has a reason to fear the boy with the gun.
