Always Open E-Library—Sign up to Learn More about TPL Online Resources

With the growing popularity of digital reading habits, Taipei Public Library (TPL) is embracing new technologies to increase its online collection of e-books. Residents are encouraged to take part in the e-resources classes to learn how to access the e-database starting March.

In line with Mayor Ko Wen-je’s initiative to make government resources available online, TPL has taken steps to purchase more e-materials. Individuals who possess the Library Card will be able to access the database anywhere, anytime.

To promote the service, TPL will be holding a series of classes to help familiarize the public with what’s available and the methods of access. Topics span magazines and newspapers, law database, English learning resources, children’s illustration books, and more.

These classes are free of charge. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Sign up at https://goo.gl/U18Jrj (Chinese)
