The Library is a place that you can organize your .ZIM files and see the details about them. You can load a specific .ZIM file or remove that from your library and also you can search for new available .ZIM files and then download them just by a click.
You will need the Library if you want to switch between your installed .ZIM file files. For instance, if you are using the English Wikipedia ZIM content and want to read an article of French Wikipedia, you should load the latter ZIM file from your Library.
