November marks the time of year when families start drawing close together for the holidays and you know what that means—lots and lots of family time!

The Library District has got you covered with several themed booklists available on our popular OverDrive digital platform.

FOR KIDS

We Are Family is a handpicked selection of e-books and digital audiobooks perfect for kids from ages 8 to 12 on the theme of family, including Ramona the Pest, the Penderwicks series, and One Crazy Summer, by Rita Garcia Williams.

Family Road Trip is a list of audiobooks the whole family can listen to on those long drives to Wenatchee, Walla Walla, or wherever your family gathering takes you (think Charlotte’s Web or the Geronimo Stilton series).

FOR TEENS

Family Ties offers simpatico titles for all those times when the relatives can be a bit much, with reads including We Were Liars, by E. Lockhart, and Return to Me, by Justina Chen.

FOR GROWNUPS

It’s worth pointing out that we curate OverDrive eBook and audiobook lists throughout the year and they’re not limited to children and teens. Current lists for adults include Snuggle into Fall and Robots, A.I., and Superintelligence – the Future Is Now.

We’ve even put together a list of thought-provoking adult and teen titles to read after you’ve read (or seen) The Hate U Give.

ALL TITLES ON OVERDRIVE

To see what books we’re currently highlighting, you can visit our OverDrive website at scld.overdrive.com.

You’ll find a fantastic variety of lists, mostly adult, on the main OverDrive web page. For lists geared specifically to kids and teens, you can click on the Kids or Teens links at the top of the OverDrive web page.

GET THE APP: LIBBY

If you’re trying out eBooks and audiobooks for the first time, OverDrive has an intuitive app for your digital devices called Libby. You can learn more about Libby and download it to your device at meet.libbyapp.com.

With so many great stories to choose from, your late fall and winter holidays may have just become a little more festive!
