On October 7, OverDrive, the digital reading platform for libraries and schools, announced the acquisition of TeachingBooks.net, a long-standing, Wisconsin-founded resource provided statewide through BadgerLink. Founder and Head of TeachingBooks Nick Glass said, "I'm so honored to be moving forward with OverDrive, building upon the TeachingBooks foundation that colleagues and customers have spectacularly built. With the merging of these amazing literacy services, we will enable readers, librarians and educators to benefit from both the book and impactful enrichment materials."
This acquisition will not impact the access, setup, support, or content that TeachingBooks or its public library interface BookConnections.org is providing Wisconsin through BadgerLink. They remain stand-alone products for every school, library, and resident in our state.
Please reach out to the BadgerLink team if you have any questions.
