The San Mateo County Library (SMCL) has announced the launch of its new mobile app, powered by Boopsie. The app is available for both smart phones and tablets.
The SMCL Mobile App is available to download at www.smcl.boopsie.com , or visit the app store for your particular device. With the SMCL app, customers are able to perform many of the same tasks they do online: search the catalog, place holds, renew materials and see a display of new books, movies and music. They can follow SMCL blogs, check out events and programs, locate SMCL branches and connect with library staff.
The new app is also designed to simplify access to the library’s collection of ebooks/eaudiobooks with easy download ability. Finally, the app features BookLook, which can be used to scan a book’s ISBN code to find out if the item is owned by SMCL.
