We are part of the Big Library Read!

Big Library Read is the world’s largest global eBook reading club through libraries and schools. It connects millions of readers around the world with the same eBook at the same time. This year, Petawawa Public Library users can borrow the eBook and audiobook, American Sniper by Chris Kyle.

American Sniper was the source for the blockbuster movie which was nominated for six Academy awards, including best picture. U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Kyle, who was killed tragically in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war – including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates – and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris.

Big Library Read runs for two weeks from March 17 to March 31. All you need to get started is a Petawawa Public library card and PIN. American Sniper can be read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Chromebook™ 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.

We are excited to provide such widespread access to this book and hope all our members will take the opportunity to sign in to OverDrive to check out and download a copy of American Sniper.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between the Petawawa Public Library, OverDrive and HarperCollins, publisher of American Sniper. To borrow the eBook and audiobook visit OverDrive.
