ALA and Rakuten OverDrive have collaborated on a digital reading program—a national “digital book club”—which connects readers nationwide with simultaneous access to the same ebook through their public libraries. This program, called the Libraries Transform Book Pick, offers the new riveting post-apocalyptic novel After the Flood by Kassandra Montag (William Morrow). After the Flood will be available as an ebook with no waitlists or holds from Oct. 7–21 at public libraries through OverDrive. Public libraries in the US already partnering with OverDrive can lend ebook copies of After the Flood at no cost during the two-week program.
