The Stanislaus County Library’s new mobile app is now available in the App Store and the Play Store.
Library customers can continue to access their library card accounts, find the nearest branch, search the library catalog, and see upcoming events. The new app offers additional functionality, including access to library databases, online payments and a link to ZipBooks, a grant program that allows customers to request book purchases for items the library does not own.
“The new app gives our customers more convenient access to the library right from their cell phones or other mobile devices,” said John Fleming, Virtual Services Manager at the Stanislaus County Library. “One feature we’re especially excited about is real-time updates to the library catalog. Mobile users can now find the latest best-sellers as soon as the items are added to the library catalog, just as if they were searching inside the library.”
Library app users can customize the appearance of the app by reorganizing options in the order they prefer. In addition, once logged into the app a customer’s library card barcode can be viewed and used to check out materials at the library in place of a traditional library card.
To download the new app, search “Stanislaus County Library” at the App Store or Play Store. For more information, visit www.stanislauslibrary.org or call 209-558-7814.
