Dear Commons Community,
The New York Public Library is going mobile by making available an app for downloading 300,000 of its holdings.
The app called SimplyE, is available if you have a library card. If you do, you can simply head to the app to check your desired book’s availability and download it for free, right to your phone. Books in the public domain are available for permanent download.
There are a limited number of licenses for each book, so if you have your eye on a popular choice, you may have to wait until it’s back “in stock” to read it. But you can always reserve a book and download it when it’s available.
Go read and be happy!
