Library users across the region can visit the library via mobile devices using the BookMyne application. BookMyne offers all the capabilities of your local library account, but while on the go. Created by SirsiDynix, the application provides mobile access to in-demand library information, library materials and services.
 
BookMyne allows library customers to search the catalog, place holds, view their accounts, view digital bookshelves and more through their iOS or Android devices no matter where they are.
 
Technology Support Librarian Tyler Irvin says adding BookMyne expands SELCO’s ongoing mission of supporting and connecting libraries across the region.
 
“Providing patrons mobile access to their library accounts means that regional library users will be able to stay connected to their libraries and access services at their convenience,” Irvin said. “We at SELCO are pleased that we can offer this technology to provide better services to library patrons across the region.”
 
The BookMyne app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Android Market for free.
