With all of the free workouts, fun Instagram accounts, and workshops you can take online, there are so many ways to stay entertained! But if you want to get back down to basics and cuddle up with a good book, the Toronto Public Library has got you covered.

In the past, you’d have to go to your nearest Toronto Public Library (TPL) to get access to its services, but they’ve recently made things easier for those living in the city.

You can now get instant access to the TPL online.

With all library locations closed, TPL is offering access to OverDrive, the largest collection of e-books and audiobooks, with the city’s new Instant Digital Card. This means you don’t have to spend a cent to read or listen to those books you’ve been meaning to get around to.

Anyone aged 13 or older with a Toronto cellphone can get the Instant Digital Card.

New customers can enjoy this access until September 1, 2020. All you need to get started is the campaign code, “TPL2020”; a cellphone with the area codes 416, 647, or 347 that can receive text messages; a computer with an internet connection, or a smartphone or tablet with one of OverDrive’s e-reading apps, Libby or OverDrive.

You can get instructions on how to register on the TPL’s website.

Once you’re all set up, you’ll get access to thousands of e-books and audiobooks; collections for adults, kids, and teens; small collections in French, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, and Portuguese; and nearly 3,000 streaming videos.

After September 2020, those who signed up for the Instant Digital Card will be invited to register for a free, full-service permanent library card, so you can keep on saving on books, TPL digital services, and more. Happy reading!
