We made an exciting announcement at the Ontario Library Association (OLA) Super Conference in Toronto, Ontario yesterday! Canadian libraries, schools, and colleges will soon have access to thousands of eBooks from Random House of Canada and McClelland & Stewart through OverDrive. Libraries will be able to offer their customers digital books from award-winning authors including Margaret Atwood, Mordecai Richler, Judy Fong Bates, and Vincent Lam, as well as international best-selling authors such as P.D. James and Salman Rushdie. To see if your public library is a member of the OverDrive network, visit http://search.overdrive.com.
“The Random House of Canada collection give libraries access to more beloved Canadian authors and titles from historic Canadian publishing houses, such as McClelland & Stewart and Tundra Books,” said Claudia Weissman, international business director for OverDrive. “The addition of these titles significantly expands what was already one of the largest collections of eBooks for Canadian libraries.”
“Random House of Canada is committed to bringing the work of our authors to readers in whatever format the readers choose,” said Lisa Charters, SVP, Digital, Random House of Canada. “We are pleased to partner with Overdrive to bring our authors’ work to even more readers in libraries.”
