Mobile Apps

The new library mobile app is the mobile gateway to your library.

With this app you can keep track of your reservations and the items you have on loan. Which you can then renew straight from the app.

The app also acts as a digital library card. No more need for carrying another piece of plastic. If you are borrowing a book, or need your library membership number, just open the app instead.
