We now have a new link on our Overdrive Big Country Library page. About halfway down, you’ll see a bright blue icon that says “Visit the digital collection for KIDS eReading Room.” If you click the icon, the Kids’ Reading Room will open. This room contains only titles for children and teens/young adults. No adult content can be accessed. We just added many new titles, too, so let your kids explore! They can also enter these titles on their Book Hounds title logs to count towards the top reader contest!
