This Could Be Your Lucky Day

There are two kinds of people in this world: people who hate waiting in line and people who hate waiting in line with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns. And we all know, waiting is even worse when what you are waiting for is something you really, really want. Well, Harris County Public Library can't do anything about the line for a table at Killen's. We can, however, make the wait for the book you are waiting in the holds queue for a lot shorter. But, only if you are determined, vigilant and just a little bit lucky.

How it works:
Periodically throughout each day, between Monday July 22 and Saturday, July 27, Harris County Public Library will release four new copies (2 ebook and 2 downloadable audiobook) of over two hundred of the most in-demand titles in our digital collection. If you are one of the first four people to see and checkout a copy, you know it is your lucky day! 

What you need to know:
Whenever you have a moment during the week, go to and see if you see the book you've been waiting for. If you do, snap it up!
Titles will appear only in the Lucky Day Collection on OverDrive
Checkout period for all Lucky Day titles is 1 week
