The Library on Your Smartphone: There’s an App for That

It’s no secret that the sale of smartphones exceeded the sale of computers last year (read more about this interesting trend here). Because we strive to anticipate the needs of our patrons, the library offers some handy apps for smartphone users:

  • LibAnywhere provides access to your library account and the mobile catalog

  • Overdrive Media Console allows you to check out library eBooks right to your mobile device – a must for folks who like to have some reading material at all times

  • Freading is another eBook service the library uses. The selection of titles on Freading is incredible; this is the place to find beautiful nonfiction and fun books for kids

  • Mango delivers language lessons to your phone, with the option of learning 38 foreign languages

  • OneClickdigital is the library’s eAudiobook partner; you can choose from titles recorded by Recorded Books, which also provides the library with many of our physical audiobooks

  • Zinio gives you access to full-text magazines exactly as they appear in print. Some of the most popular titles are Cosmopolitan, National Geographic and Consumer Reports.

To download these free apps, just visit the app store from your smartphone and search for them by keyword. Questions? Just ask us!
