E-Books Simplified with One App

Our catalog, online resources, and library accounts may be unavailable on Friday, September 28th, between 2 a.m. - 6 a.m. while we work on a catalog upgrade.

We're proud to be the first Bay Area Library to provide the SimplyE App to our patrons. SimplyE is a new app that gives AC Library cardholders one interface to Browse, Borrow, and Read our collection of eBooks. The app brings together titles from our eBook providers. E-book titles include those from Overdrive, Cloud Library, RBdigital, Enki, and the Library’s open access collection.  

With one login and as few as 3 clicks, you can start discovering and reading our collection of nearly 100,000 eBooks.

With the SimplyE app you can:

  • Find all eBooks in one place
  • Borrow eBooks instantly
  • Read eBooks on the app

You’ll need an Alameda County Library card to use SimplyE. You can get a library card at any branch library.

Start simplifying your eBook experience today by downloading the new app.
