This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The Seattle Public Library in your pocket! The catalog, My Account, and some features of the Library Web site are now available from your Web-enabled phone. Search the Library catalog for a title, place holds, renew items you have checked out, see what you have on hold, and view most account information. You can Ask a Librarian a question via instant messaging, text, or telephone during Library open hours (phone feature dependent). Check the calendar of events for classes, story times, author readings, and other programs. Find your nearest Library location on the map and view hours, addresses, and other information. Use book, DVD, CD and audio book lists to discover new or recommended titles. Read the latest entries on Library blogs and our Facebook fan page.
The mobile catalog offers a great new way to find items - just type the first couple of letters of words. Type 'row gob' for J.K. Rowlings' "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." For "Gossip Girl" titles, type 'gos gi.' To find a specific "Gossip Girl" title like "Because I'm Worth It," you only have to type 'gos gi be.'
What's New in Version 6.5.1
New loading image for better look and feel
Good app; except......
Now all of a sudden I have to enter my email address every time I sign in to my account? Why can't it store that like it does my library card number and PIN? Or better yet, take that back out; app worked fine before it was added.
Desperately needs a major overhaul
This app is really outdated. It hasn't been updated for the larger screens so on a 6S Plus everything is huge like I'm using a phone for old people. It also just looks terrible: cheesy icons, bad font choices and terrible menu design. About the best you can say is that it's barely functional.
At least they kinda tried....
App is really slow, tends to time out. Under "My Accounts" when you tap Overdrive "Tap for Account Summary", you will arrive at another list of items to choose from, but tapping any of them will take you back to the previous page after freezing up for several minutes.
