The MyLibrary! app is free to download, and brings the library to your fingertips. Enjoy browsing library news while placing a hold on a title that has caught your eye.
The introductory video is supplied by Innovative Interfaces Inc.
The app offers 4 primary features:
Scan Book: using this feature is a great way to see if your library has a copy of a must-read book recommended by a friend. Simply scan the barcode on any book's cover to see if it is available at the library, and in what formats.
Search Catalog: this will link you to the mobile version of the library catalog. Searching the catalog and placing holds has never been easier!
My Account: allows the user to see current checkouts, holds, and basic profile information. In addition, the app will scan a library card, making it easy for first-time users to sign-in to the app. You will need your PIN (assigned at library registration) to complete the login. Of note: a digital version of the library card number is available in My Account and is readable by library scanners.
Social Media: provides direct access to Elgin County Library's Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram webpages.
MyLibrary! supports English, Spanish, French, and Canadian French languages. To view these languages, change the language preference on your device and the app will refresh with the new language selection.
