Good app but an AMAZING Library
This review is more about the Allen county public library it's services than the app, with that said the app is very well made and does make it much easier to manage my acct. and browse the catalog. I am 28yrs old & fortunate enough to have a career that provides the means to support my upper middle class life and in todays world that includes having every new device or piece of tech on the mkt. so of course i have every content subscription available right? Prime(just got AMZN fire tho), NFLX, Audible, kindle unlimited, smh & even hulu. I dnt mention any of this to brag (wooo wooo upper middle poppin' bottles.....of stella), but to make a point by illustrating that even in our digital content filled world that even someone like me with all the content i could ever want a few finger taps away, the membership that i most use by far is still my good ol' trusty Lib. card!! I can say with complete confidence the reason why is because how insanely awesome the ACPL is, and we are soooo lucky as a city to have such a valuable resource available to us. The motivation behind this ridiculous review was A conversation that coworkers of mine were having about how unnecessary libraries are today because the only ppl who have any use for them are the homeless and teens without Wi-Fi access at home so they use the library to update their FB status and check their TWTR feeds. I am living proof that The library is far from obsolete, if anything it is more relevant today as a vital resource that is needed more than ever in a time when our schools education model is broken and totally ineffective in preparing students for the rapidly changing future economic landscape where a prerequisite to be part of the workforce will include a solid understanding of IT & software. That makes an organization like the ACPL key in a time when schools are leaving students so ill-equipped for the future and also adults who are watching as their careers are being eaten by rapid technologic advances that make their jobs obsolete, so to survive they must adapt themselves and to do that you must learn a new skill by acquiring new knowledge and to be successful at evolving with the times you have got to be a self educator. That makes libraries especially ones like we are so lucky to have the life blood of the city's educational ecosystem. I work at a buyside financial firm that relies on receiving the fastest and most accurate information available. For that privilege our firm pays incredible amounts of money so that teams just like mine around the globe access the same platforms that provide us with the "best" data research & analysis. For instance I sit in front of a Bloomberg terminal all day(a bank of "computer screens" usually between4-8 screens & a special keyboard for traders and investment professionals) they sign lease's for the terminals and contracts for the Bloomberg professional software. For my bloomberg terminal (a bank of 4 separate screen's) that i basically live my life infront of costs my firm over $23,000 annually, yes just for mine, and there is an army of ppl who have those terminals within the firm I work for and for each one they pay over 23 grand a year all for access to information and analysis tools. And the funny thing is that I do most of my research using the library and it services for free😂😂🤑🤑🤑 basically ACPL YOU ROCK
