Reading has been one of my favorite hobbies, even as a preschooler. My love for books, reading and the amazing collections of the Los Angeles Public Library have not changed. However, my needs as a reader have matured. As e-books have developed, I discovered how they support my reading habits in different ways. For instance, as an adult traveler, I’ve greatly appreciated the portability of carrying e-books with me on a flight, with only a reading app installed on my tablet. Never having to remember to return e-books has also been of great advantage to my time and convenience, since e-books from the library always return themselves.
Recently, I have found even greater access to more e-book collections at the library, through a new app called SimplyE. SimplyE brings most of the library’s e-book collections together in one place. This is including titles from Overdrive, enki, and Biblioboard. SimplyE also offers access to public domain and openly-licensed books through the SimplyE Collection, and Open Bookshelf—these are titles that you can keep and never have to return.
In fact, SimplyE allows all Los Angeles Public Library cardholders to access the enki collection for the first time ever. enki is a librarian-curated e-book collection of popular fiction and nonfiction genres including romance, mysteries, travel, technical, crafts, and cooking—with over 70,000 titles available.
