WVBS Ebooks on OverdriveHelp get WVBS resources into your local library!

More than 27,000 libraries offer ebooks through the “OverDrive” media service, and World Video Bible School has eight books that have been accepted into their system.  Now, we need our supporters to help get these books in as many library systems as possible. 

With your help, we have already gained access into numerous public libraries: Austin Public Library (Texas), Northeast Texas Digital Consortium (Texas), Memphis Public Libraries (Tennessee, Sacramento Public Libraries (California)
