New Library Mobile App

Check out the new free app for our library catalog! Now you can use your mobile device to view your library account, quickly see what’s new at the library (new books, new DVDs, etc.), put a hold on items you like, renew what you have checked out, and even pay library fines using PayPal. You can also create lists of items you would like to check out, books you would like to read.

Suppose you are at a store and see a book you’d like to read, but don’t want to buy it if the library already has a copy. You can use the Library Mobile catalog app to scan the book’s ISBN barcode (usually on the back of the book towards the bottom) and instantly see if the library owns it.

Look for Auto-Graphics Library Mobile in your app store to get started. Once you’ve installed the app, type in the zip code to find your library and login using your library card number and password. You have the option of setting the app to remember your library card number and password for you so you won’t have to enter it again.

Teen Area

We’ve added computers to the library’s teen area that are exclusively for the use of our teen patrons. The computers and the lovely new computer tables they sit on are a welcome addition to our vibrant teen area, which includes comfy furniture and a good selection of books and graphic novels that are sure to engage even reluctant readers.
