International eReading Day September 18

International Read an eBook Day, an annual celebration to raise awareness for digital reading, is Friday, September 18. As with most other aspects of our lives, the ways in which we read books have undergone radical changes in the past few years. International Read an eBook Day honors this digital shift in partnership with libraries across the world.

International Read an eBook Day is a celebration of modern storytelling. Readers around the globe are encouraged to take part by sharing what they are reading and how they are celebrating on a variety of social media channels. Readers can use the hashtag #eBookLove on Facebook and Twitter to tell their story and share their love of eBooks, or comment directly at

Public libraries are helping to celebrate International Read an eBook Day. Traditionally, libraries have served communities with reading materials of all kinds, and today, it is one of the most significant places to discover and read eBooks and other digital content. Public library customers have borrowed 109 million eBooks and audiobooks in 2015 (through August 31), a 23 percent increase over the same period in 2014.

International Read an eBook Day occurs during Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide encourage every student to get the most important school supply of all – a free library card. Adults, of course, are encouraged as well. To sign up for a library card, visit your local library and begin borrowing popular digital titles immediately.
