Register for an online account and download the Libby app

I want to share this tip.

I walked into the Ang Mo Kio branch library recently. It was not crowded.

I asked the staff to check if my library card is still valid, as I have not visited the library for more than ten years.

She suggested that I register for an online account to order books online. She also helped me to download the Libby app to read e-books.

She helped me with the process, which took about 15 minutes.

It was excellent.

I now read many e-books and e-magazines with the Libby app on my mobile phone.

My tip - go to your nearby branch library and ask the staff to help you to register an online account and to download the Libby app. It is an excellent way to use the resources of the library.
