The Los Angeles County Library has launched a new mobile app, available for iOS and Android, with a range of new features and functions.
The updated app makes it easy to browse the collection, get details on items, make a selection, check out an item or place a hold for later pick up, and renew items previously checked out.
Customers will be able to check out eBooks and audiobooks with one-click, and either stream in their browser or link to their OverDrive account.
“Many of our customers use their mobile device to access information online, and we’re excited that our new easy-to-use app allows them to enjoy the library, wherever they go,” said Library Director Skye Patrick. “The app was designed to provide convenient, quick information to our customers.”
Customers can search the nearby library locations through the app’s locator feature, which displays location addresses and hours. The account management tool allows customers to customize the app layout, view fines and fees, and link multiple library accounts together—a great feature for families. Popular website pages can be accessed through the app as well.
Search LA County Library in the App Store or Google Play to download the new app now.
