Have you ever had that sinking feeling – perhaps in the middle of a holiday – as you realise you’ve forgotten to renew your library books? Do you find yourself wondering if the interesting-yet-obscure book you just discovered at a friend’s house, or in a shop, is in stock at your local library?
All this could be a thing of the past with the “Library Anywhere” mobile app! Library Anywhere – free from the App Store and Google Play – gives you access to your library account information, opening times and much more. Search for items on the Library Catalogue, place holds and renew your borrowed items wherever you are. The app comes with a handy option for scanning barcodes so you can easily check to see if that cool looking book is indeed available at your local branch.
