Big Library Read from Library2Go


Eddy-New Rockford Library to Participate in Worldwide Digital Book Club
New York Times Bestseller, This Is Where It Ends, will be available as free eBook to borrow

The Eddy-New Rockford Library announced today that it will take part in the Big Library Read program, a worldwide digital Book club through public and school libraries that connects millions of readers across the globe with the same eBook at the same time. For a two-week period beginning October 13, ENRL users will be able to borrow the eBook, This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp (Sourcebooks), from Library2Go and participate in a worldwide version of a local book club. There will be no waitlists for this popular, powerful and emotional read. Big Library Read is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for eBooks and audiobooks for schools and libraries.

This Is Where It Ends is a compelling story of an unfortunately all-too familiar situation: a school shooting. It follows four teens who face what is every student’s worst nightmare: a boy with a gun. Told from the student’s perspective, this powerful fictional account is important in its timeliness. At its core, Marieke Nijkamp’s debut young adult novel is a must read, gripping tale from start to finish.


“Told over 54 minutes, This Is Where It Ends is a story of family and vengeance, love and loss,” said author, Marieke Nijkamp. “But to me, above all it’s a story about how even when a world seems to have stopped turning, when everything has fallen apart, the darkness is never absolute. There is always hope. I hope readers will find hope in This Is Where It Ends too”


Big Library Read is a free program. To get started reading, all that is needed is a library card.  This Is Where It Ends can be read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets, Chromebook™ and Kindle® [U.S. libraries only]. The eBook will be available with no wait lists and will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between Eddy-New Rockford Library OverDrive and Sourcebooks, publisher of This Is Where It Ends. The title was selected based on a survey of more than 5,000 readers, students, teachers and librarians. To borrow the eBook readers can visit

Transform your ideas about the library: Celebrate National Library Week April 10-16

Transform your ideas about the library: Celebrate National Library Week April 10-16

NLW 2016 hearts

This week, the Eddy-New Rockford Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries today are more about what they do, for and with library users as opposed to what they have for patrons. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, use the computers or WiFi, join a book club or just relax. Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources, including  e-books, digital audiobooks, and videos through Library2Go and from the State Library online homework help, online databases, E-Magazines and downloadable Music through Freegal, that can be accessed in person or online.

Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. At the Eddy-New Rockford Library we are transforming by offering free WiFi, an online catalog where you can search, renew your books and even reserve books for pick-up all with your library card. We also recently received a grant for non-fiction books, movies and audiobooks we are still in the process of purchasing books so if you have any suggestions stop in.

“Service to the community has always been the focus of the library,” said Susie Sharp, librarian. “Libraries level the playing field for people of any age who are seeking the information and access to technologies that will improve their quality of life.”

Libraries are many things to many people. They work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover and address the needs of their communities. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, GED Classes, programs for job seekers or offering a safe haven in times of crisis, libraries and librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

The Eddy-New Rockford Library is celebrating National Library Week by having hearts for sale at Millers Fresh Foods donate a dollar and tell us what you love about the library, these hearts will also be available at the library.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
