Have you been waiting … and waiting, and waiting … to read Oprah’s new book club pick, Tayari Jones’ An American Marriage? Me too! There are currently 71 holds on the six print copies owned by the Metro libraries; there is also a waiting list for the downloadable audiobook in our Overdrive service.
Early in February, I placed a hold on the Overdrive audio version, hoping I would get it in time for a road trip I had planned for the first weekend in March. Unfortunately, when the time came for my trip, I was still third on that wait list.
But then I made a fabulous and fun discovery! Jones’ An American Marriage is available both as an ebook and as an audio book through our new Hoopla streaming service! And with Hoopla, there is NO WAITING; there are no hold lists. Books, music, TV shows, and movies in Hoopla are ALWAYS AVAILABLE!
So if you have been waiting to get your hands on a copy of Jones’ book, check out Hoopla, and you can start reading it today.
