In lieu of the worldwide quarantine, the New York Public Library has closed down all of its branches to prevent their inventory and patrons from becoming infected. While this seems like a horrible thing for those that wished to read during their isolation at home, steps have been taken to rectify it.

Thanks to SimplyE, an app designed  by the New York Public Library to allow people to access ebooks on all platforms, the library's collection is now available from the comfort of your couch. Just go to their website, download the app, and give them the information on your library card. From their, you'll have an entire collection of ebooks and audiobooks to pass the time.

If you have a membership or needed an excuse to get one, now's the time to read everything you can get your hands on.
