April 2023: Commitment by Mona Simpson
Borrow books (and more than 300,000 others) for free through the Library’s e-reader app SimplyE, available for iOS and Android devices.
Each month, WNYC host Alison Stewart and the Library will accompany readers throughout the month, providing touchpoints on-air and on social media at @allofitwnyc and @nypl. Plus, don't miss out on our librarian-led book club discussions, hosted in-person and online. Find a discussion group!
Join Stewart, the author and readers everywhere for a live conversation, in-person or online, on Wednesday, April 26, at 6 PM.
Get Started With SimplyE
New York Public Library cardholders can gain access to an array of digital resources for all ages, including e-books, audiobooks, databases, and more.
If you don’t have an NYPL library card, New York State residents can apply for a digital card through the Library’s SimplyE app (available on the App Store or Google Play). Once you’ve received your barcode and PIN, explore SimplyE to discover hundreds of thousands of e-books, plus visit our website to find many more digital resources.
Patrons 13 years and older can apply for their own library cards. Patrons 12 and under will need a parent or caregiver to create an account. Note: These accounts cannot be restricted to only children’s materials.
After registering, it may take a few hours to receive your barcode in order to access the Library’s digital resources. Once you sign up for a card through SimplyE, you will need to select a home library after your barcode has been emailed to you. Log into your account and click on Settings to set your Preferred Pickup location.
If you have further questions about how to use SimplyE, please contact Ask NYPL.
