THE BIG LIBRARY READ


Big Library Read is an international reading program that connects millions of readers around the world simultaneously with an eBook through the library. Readers can join an online conversation about the book at BigLibraryRead.com. The free program runs for two weeks, June 12th-26th, and to get started reading, all that is needed is a Philo library card. The Other Einstein can be read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets, Chromebook™ and Kindle® [U.S. Libraries only] without worrying about wait lists or holds. The eBook will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and there are no late fees.
