The nonprofit group, which has made some 4 million books available online for free, says that it is suspending waitlists for the 1.4 million works in its lending library. 

To gain access, NYPL's free e-reader app, SimplyE, can be downloaded for iPhone or Android.
There is a limit of three books that you can borrow because there has been a surge in the app's usage now that we're all at home, according to the library.

You can also search the library's collection of 800,000 digitized items, including historic prints, photographs, maps, and manuscripts and check out Mango Languages and Career Cruising with your New York City library card.
