NEW YORK — Book readers in the city can turn a page toward a digital future thanks to a New York Public Library app released Tuesday.

The new app for readers, SimplyE, allows anyone with a library card and an Android or iOS device to check out any of the library system’s more than 300,000 eBooks, audio books and research papers.

The New York Public Library plans to further develop the app and add more features for readers in the coming months. Kindle and web browser versions are being developed.
