Customer Reviews

Amazing App!


Looking at the other reviews it would appear that they have some issues with it. I added some of the things below that I found through use over time. This app has actually made me go back to the library! I have had zero problems with this app from my experience with it.

One of the things I noticed was in order to enjoy the full experience you need to log into your library account. Doing this allows you to request, cancel, and renew items from the library. When you request a book, you are able to choose the pickup location via Select Location before hitting the request button. You are able to filter when you search for books Via the Keyword drop down. Also another great feature is being able to Scan a book that you see at a book store. This will allow you to see if the library has that same item. Checkout the barcode scanner under search, it is awesome!

Some of these things really helped me as I was using the app. Hope they help you too, happy reading!

A step forward but two steps back - update


Update: the updates did bring back the location and hours. However, I would love to see the search feature say which branch an item is currently checked in. I loved that feature of the old app and have kept the old app for this reason. Would love to see this be a part of the current app.

I like the interface of the new update but I can't find the home page or where location and hours are located. It was super easy and intuitive in the old app. I hope there are plans to bring back the features that worked in the first version while integrating the new bookshelf interface.

Much better user interface. Use this app daily!


I never really used the old library app because it was kind of clunky, but this version is much better and sleeker. The search function is super easy and love the ability to scan a book barcode to search it in the library catalog. I was recently at a bookstore and used it, ended up saving me a lot of money! I also like the digital library card!!! Super easy to use, super easy to renew books and avoid those late fees. Has really upped my use of the library system.
