The library launched an intuitive new app this week. Available for iOS and Android, this free app makes it easy to use the library even when you’re not physically in the building. Inside the library, the app allows patrons to use their phone to checkout instead of bringing a library card.
Patrons can browse the library’s collections, place a hold and renew items. Users can also view the library calendar and register for programs. Comprehensive account management is built in with the ability to view/pay fines and link the digital library cards of up to six family members and manage multiple accounts. Additionally, patrons can connect to subscription online resources such as Consumer Reports or Morningstar Investment Research.
“People are increasingly accessing the library primarily through their phones or tablets,” said Director, Shaun Briley. “The new app provides our patrons with a convenient and easy way to access library resources that fits their lifestyle.”

Additionally, the ‘Cloud Library’ app allows patrons to browse and checkout eBooks and eAudio and can also function as a library card for checkout purposes.
