Readers can borrow Cowboy Pride without waitlists or holds for two weeks

Inspired by Pride and Prejudice, author Lacy Williams has introduced a new dual love story with a Wild West twist. Cowboy Pride has been selected for the next Big Library Read. From July 9-23, CLAMS Library Network users will be able to borrow the eBook format of the title with no wait lists or holds. Readers can take part in the two-week program by visiting clamsnet.overdrive.com or by downloading the Libby app. Big Library Read is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading platform for eBooks and audiobooks from the library.

Williams is the USA Today bestselling author of the acclaimed Wyoming Legacy and Cowboy Fairytales series. Cowboy Pride, the third installment of Wyoming Legacy, is a love story where hearts and emotions get tangled, and first impressions count. It’s a contemporary romance that serves as an escape from reality for readers.

“Current technology allows us nearly unlimited access to information, including books. So many books,” Williams said. “I’m not sure at what age I first read Pride and Prejudice. My early teens, probably. I’ve read it numerous times through the years. My first fur-baby was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Mr. Bingley. So, from one (Jane) Austen lover to another, allow me to say, ‘You are too generous to trifle with me.’ Thank you for reading this book.”

  1. I live in South Yarmouth and have a passion for childrens’ literacy programs (reading, writing, comprehension). As a Monday morning children’s library volunteer here, I would like to volunteer in the CLAMS summer library literacy programs. I have also spoken with my supervisors there Connie and Melissa.
    Thank you for your help. Nancye Heins
