OverDrive Summer Read is an annual program for schools in the US and Canada designed to encourage your students to keep reading all year long. This year’s 10-week program, running June 6 – August 15, is our longest ever. We’re also offering more titles than ever before. Thirty free and simultaneous use juvenile and young adult ebooks (and select audiobook and Read-Along options) will be available to students in participating schools. These titles will be prominently displayed in Sora so it’s easy for students to find their next book and chill out and read.

There is a new citation tool that is great for making one or two quick citations. If you don't need to save citations in Noodletools or make notecards, try ZoteroBib. You can even paste a URL into the search box and ZoteroBib will create a citation for you!
(As with all citation generators, there can sometimes be errors. Make sure you check the citation carefully and compare with the correct format. More information available on the "Make Citations" page above under the Research tab.)

"Whatever your ailment, our prescriptions are simple: a novel (or two), to be read at regular intervals. Some treatments will lead to a complete cure. Others will simply offer solace, showing you that you are not alone. All will offer the temporary relief of your symptoms due to the power of literature to distract and transport."
- from The Novel Cure by Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin
