OverDrive offers anti-racism books free to libraries

OverDrive is making anti-racism and social justice books available to libraries at no charge and with simultaneous use as part of a program called Black Lives Matter: Community Read. "The titles included ... are focused on #ownvoices and are intended to help patrons read, listen, learn and grow as they expand their knowledge of race relations," the company notes, with titles including "The Hate U Give," (available June 22 – July 19 in e-book and audiobook) "Me and White Supremacy" (available June 22 - July 12 in e-book) and "The New Jim Crow"  (available June 15 – July 15 in audiobook) and "So You Want to Talk About Race" expected to be available in the future as an audiobook.
