The librarians of the Tallinn Central Library are reading books via Skype or phone for children who have to stay at home because of the COVID-19 crisis. A child only needs to choose a book from the library list and call the librarian, who will then read the book for him/her. One session lasts maximum 30 minutes.
The library, which has already had a large stock of e-books available since it opened eight years ago, is also now uploading tonnes more e-books to keep people engaged during the coronavirus, and is providing free online registration for those Estonian citizens who are not yet readers in order to grant access to e-library ELLU.
