POLSON — North Lake County Public Library is excited to announce the availability of their new intuitive mobile app with the Montana Shared Catalog. Available for iOS and Android, this app makes it easy to use the library even if a member is not physically in the library.
The Montana Shared Catalog app makes it easy to digitally browse the library’s collection, get details on items, make a selection, place a hold for later pickup, and even renew items previously checked out. The app’s location finder lets members find the location and operating hours of the nearest library location, which is great for finding a Partner library in Montana. Comprehensive account management is built-in too, including the ability to place and renew holds, view their fines and fees, and for families, members can link together digital library cards to easily manage multiple accounts.
This app replaces the current app, named BookMyne. The library would like all members to know that the former app should be uninstalled from their devices and the new app is available for download.
Library Director Abbi Dooley encourages everyone to download the new app. “This new app is so easy to use and has some great features. You can now use your phone and have it pull up your library bar code for easy scanning. No need to dig around for your library card. You can see new titles that have been added to the library’s collection and there is an easy to use ISBN scanner to see if a title is in our collection. Perfect when you’re out shopping and wondering if we have it.” Dooley notes that additional features will be added in the future and encourages feedback from users.
Assistant Director Mallory Witham added: “This application is very easy to download and use. I love that I can check my account with just a glance. I can see how many books are on my card and check my pending holds.”
