BookMyne smart phone app allows library access
BookMyne is a neat app that allows you to search the library’s catalog and access your library account via your smart phone. It’s available to download for the Apple iPhone (iOS) and all Android phones via their respective markets. Until recently, the Android version was still in Beta. (Translation: you could expect it to be somewhat buggy.)
After you download it, you can select your library. It does give you a list of nearby libraries, so that makes it fairly easy to select the Dwight Foster Public Library and then access the catalog and your account (assuming you aren’t on vacation in some tropical paradise when you do this step) simply by entering your library card number and PIN.
The app has some neat features, including an interface with a social site for readers called Goodreads. It also displays the number of issues that need attention (for example overdues to return or holds to pick up) by displaying a red number in the “My Account” area on the home screen. In the image above, their are 12 such items. Pretty nifty way to remember that you need to get to the library!
