Macmillan Makes eBooks Available in Libraries Via OverDrive

Macmillan Publishers has partnered with OverDrive, a company that distributes digital books to more than 22,000 libraries, to make a collection of its eBooks available to libraries through a pilot program.

As part of the pilot, libraries that have access to OverDrive will now have access to more than 1,200 titles from Macmillan’s Minotaur Books imprint. This includes pieces from authors Olen Steinhauser and Julia Spencer-Fleming. Macmillan is making one copy of each eBook available so that one copy can be check out at a time.

“We’re delighted to provide libraries and their readers with these sought-after Macmillan eBooks,” stated Erica Lazzaro, director of publisher relations at OverDrive. “Showcasing this rich collection of Macmillan titles in the digital library will generate fresh exposure for these books and authors, connecting them with millions of readers looking for what to read next.”
