For over a year, Michelle Obama's Becoming has been the most popular book across all of the library's platforms. But local author Mayann Francis' autobiography An Honourable Life is the second-most checked out e-book last year on Overdrive, an app for desktop, tablets or phones that allows users to check out ebooks and read them right on their devices.
MacNeil shouts out RBdigital's magazine and newspaper archive as one of the best ways to pass time—with full resolution issues right on your phone or tablet. (May we recommend the most recent issue of Bon Appetit on how to be a better baker?)
For people "who may have been holding off learning any languages," MacNeil highly recommends the library's Rocket Language tool with 15 different languages you can learn on the "easy-to-use site."
