BKR: How Can I Get Books?

Now that we're challenging the city of Beverly to read 5,000 books this spring with Beverly Keeps Reading, you might be wondering where those books will come from. Here are several ideas:
  • Get ebooks from the libraryThe Beverly Public Library has e-books and e-audiobooks for all ages through Hoopla, Overdrive, and TumbleBooks. That same page has links to get a library card online from the Beverly Public Library. Massachusetts residents can also get a Boston Public Library card online.
  • Support your local bookstores! Copper Dog Books and the Book Shop of Beverly Farms are both fulfilling orders online, quickly shipping books out. It's often faster than getting books from the big national online outlets and it also helps keep your money in the local economy.
  • Dig out those books you might have at home. Many of us have favorite books that are a comforting re-read in these crazy times. Or take that book off the shelf you've been meaning to get to and dig into it today. 
Sign up now and help Beverly log 5,000 books this spring! There will be a prize drawing each week, but you have to be registered to win. This week you can win a $25 gift card from Super Sub!
