One click access to library information from any internet-capable phone
Do you want to renew your library book or place one on hold? There’s an app for that. Library hours? There’s an app for that. Download an ebook? Find information fast? There’s an app for that, too. Get it!
Wright Memorial Public Library has recently launched a mobile app to put the library at your fingertips. From any mobile phone connected to the internet you can instantly tap into library resources, anytime, anywhere. You can search the library catalog, check your account, ask a question, find events and more.
To access the library’s mobile app, search “Wright Memorial Public Library” in your phone’s market and download the app, or just go to wright.boopsie.com from your mobile device browser.
“Everyone lives on their mobile phones these days, so it’s important for the library to be easily accessible whenever and wherever people need access to our staff and rich resources,” says Ann Snively, Library Director. “Our mobile app puts library information just one click away with much faster access than going through a browser. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this new way to use the library by downloading our app.”
Searching the catalog with the mobile app is especially easy. Just type the first few letters of two or three words and search results will begin to appear. For example, if you’re looking up Mark Twain in the catalog, just type “ma twa.” Once you find the title you’re looking for, you can place it on hold right from your phone.
Snively says the app offers additional features, including BookLook Mobile that lets you scan an ISBN barcode anywhere you are to see if the library owns the title. “This is an amazing feature. If you’re at a bookstore you can just scan the ISBN, see if the library owns it and—if they do—place a hold on it right from your phone.”
The library’s mobile app was developed by Boopsie Inc. More than 250 libraries and universities use Boopsie to increase community visibility. Easy to implement and affordable for all size libraries, Boopsie solves the problem of unwieldy website viewing on a small screen.
