Participating public libraries will be offering free, unlimited access to the first e-book — Glass Beads, by Saskatchewan-born Indigenous author, actor, and comedian, Dawn Dumont. The book will be available in both eBook and eAudiobook formats across digital content platforms. This book will be available – without holds or waitlists – to all OPL cardholders.

The free offer is in conjunction with the inaugural One eRead Canada campaign from June 3 to 30, 2019.

One eRead Canada is the latest initiative undertaken by the Canadian Urban Libraries Council (CULC), which is striving to resolve the prohibitive costs and purchasing restrictions public libraries face related to eContent.

Councillor Tim Tierney, Chair of the Ottawa Public Library Board, is excited about the inaugural One eRead Canada campaign. “Everyone benefits from stronger eContent for libraries”, says Chair Tierney. “Through this campaign, we are raising awareness about library access to eContent, which is good for publishers, readers, and authors alike.”

Take advantage of this free offering from the Library published by a Canadian author.
