Halloween For Teens At GPL!

Marlene's App of the Month: Feedly

Our digital librarian, Marlene says "If you are like me, you have a lot of places on the internet that you check to read all the news and information sources that you rely on to keep up with your interests. I needed to find an easier way to keep up with my information needs. Feedly is the solution. Create an account that you can use and access on any smartphone, tablet, or computer. Search for and subscribe to information sources that meet your interests. Create collections to group your subscriptions into interest categories. Now, just open Feedly and all your information sources are gathered in one place." Find Feedly in the App Store, Google Play store or visit their website at www.feedly.com.
