The Hawai’i State Public Library System is a participant in OverDrive’s “Big Library Read” program.

Big Library Read is an international program that helps provide libraries and their patrons, both locally and abroad, access to a popular title for a two-week period, creating a virtual and global book club.

The next read campaign will begin Oct. 13 and run through Oct. 28. Readers will be able to borrow and enjoy eBook and eAudiobook versions of the newly released “Anatomy of a Misfit” by Andrea Portes.

Publishers Weekly calls the teen read an emotionally resonant story that is “instantly endearing” with a “highly memorable heroine” voice.

Big Islanders interested in borrowing “Anatomy of a Misfit” can do so using a HSPLS library card. The e-book format can be read on a computer, iPhone, iPad, Nook, and on any Android phone or tablet. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.


Downloads of the book are available from the HSPLS website.


The HSPLS eBook collection is a growing popular aspect of libraries in Hawai’i. The eBook circulation is growing at a faster rate than any other materials collection, with more than 40,000 eBook and eAudiobook titles available from the OverDrive/Digital Library Reserve.
