Library?s new E-Book app a hit

Submitted By Alicia Reyes

Alameda County Library now offers SimplyE, an app that makes it easier to browse, borrow, and read eBooks. The app brings the Library?s eBooks together in one place and bypasses the need to log in to separate eBook provider sites. With just one app, Alameda County Library card holders can access the Library?s collection of nearly 100,000 eBook titles. E-book titles include those from Overdrive, Cloud Library, RBdigital, Enki, and the Library?s open access collection.

?Thanks to our partnership with the New York Public Library and Califa, we?re pleased to be the first Bay Area Library to provide patrons with a simplified way to access our collection of eBooks,? said Cindy Chadwick, County Librarian.

With the SimplyE app you can:
? Find all eBooks in one place
? Borrow eBooks instantly
? Read eBooks on the app

To use the SimplyE app, you will need an Alameda County Library card. You can get a library card at any library of the Alameda County Library system. Download the new SimplyE app for iPhone/iPad or Android today. For app assistance, view the Library?s Frequently Asked Questions ( or contact us at Ask Us (
