At Eisenhower, we’re excited to join nearly 16,000 libraries and thousands of readers across the country in offering the first Together We Read: digital book club selection.
From February 19th to March 4th, Norridge and Harwood Heights residents can enjoy and discuss award-winning author Pat Simmons’ new eBook, Lean on Me for free with no waitlists or holds. Readers with valid Eisenhower library cards can access the eBook by visiting mediaondemand.org or by downloading the Libby app.
Lean on Me tells the story of Tabitha Knicely, a woman overwhelmed with sorrow and exhaustion caring for her beloved great-aunt, whose dementia is getting worse. When her neighbor Marcus Whittington accuses Tabitha of elder neglect, he doesn’t realize how his threats to have Aunt Tweet taken away add to Tabitha’s pain. Then Marcus gets to know the exuberant elderly lady and sees up close how hard Tabitha is fighting to keep everything together. Tabitha finds herself leaning on Marcus more and he’s becoming more than happy to share her burdens.
During Together We Read, Lean on Me can be read without waitlists or holds on the Libby app on all major computers and devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets and Chromebooks. Through Libby, readers can also “send to Kindle.”
