I don't know why I open my big mouth. I don't know why I share, but I like being helped and I like helping. I just hope this won't give the library too much work and cancel or re-evaluate it's policy.
You don't have to live or visit Taipei to get a library card. Call and request an application. Explain that you can't come to Taipei. They should want your original ARC, not a copy, along with a self addressed stamped envelope in the amount of 34 dollars.
I check it out and am "sort of pleased". So far I've found three libraries accessible for the library card. The first known as EBSCOhost has a lot of e-books and a very good online reader application. The ADOBE Digital Editions downloads, however, appear to0small for me to read on my ten inch e-pc screen. Even the my computer has English menus the downloads still insist that my computer language is Chinese so I had not gotten anywhere in trying make adjustments.
The Second Library is Overdrive. The host a very large collection of Audio Books and a decent collection of Ebooks in Adobe PDF and EPUB formats. Unlike my Overdrive account with my US Library, Overdrive offers MUSIC. There is a large classical collection and a pitifully small popular music selection.
OverDrive also offers some videos too
There is also a children s e-book library called Little Kiss 電子書登入 that says that it offers Chinese pronunciation and games. But I have not had time to give it a try.
