You may have seen the new stories on how the demand for antiracist literature has been skyrocketing at libraries, ours included. It’s a good problem to have! But it’s also kind of annoying when there is a long wait time for the book you are interested in. Well, good news! Overdrive has donated unlimited copies of digital copies of important titles on the topic of race relations and social justice. Some are audiobooks and others are e-book format. All are available with no wait time — an unlimited number of readers can access them at once, using the BAPL e-book app (Libby).
Please let us know if you have questions about e-books. We are happy to provide these important works to our community to read, listen, learn and grow.
