There is a mobile app which lets you scan ISBN numbers to input titles and authors if you want to keep track of which books you’ve read. You can also use the mobile app’s timer feature to automatically input your minutes.

The Plague Doctor

Acknowledging the 
significance of the pandemic the world is contending with, we are looking at the history of one of its most significant 
predecessor: the Black Death, Bubonic Plague.

We encourage visitors to take out books related to the topic, to learn something interesting and appreciate the
significance of this moment in the world.
