## Add a library

Use the following steps to create a library screen and add your content to that screen:

  1. From the <a href="https://dashboard.jwplayer.com/p/apps" target="_blank"><strong>Apps</strong></a> page, click the name of the app config. The settings for the app config appear.

  2. On the **Libraries** tab, click **Add Library**. A library settings card appears.

  3. In the **Library Name** field, enter the name of the library screen. This name will also appear in the main menu of the app.

  4. From the **Playlist** dropdown menu, select a playlist that contains the media items to display on this library screen. If no options appear in the dropdown menu, you must create a new <a href="/platform/docs/vdh-create-a-dynamic-playlist" target="_blank">dynamic</a> or <a href="" target="_blank">manual</a> playlist.

  5. Under **Tags**, set all the tags associated with the videos in the playlist. In the app, these tags will enable a view to filter the videos on a screen. These tags will appear as buttons or as options in a dropdown menu.

  6. Click **Update**.

  7. (Optional) Click **Preview**. A new browser tab opens displaying an interactive preview of the app.


A **maximum of five** libraries can be added to an app.
