Edwardsville Public Library has new app


The Edwardsville Public Library has a new app, and it offers a variety of options for accessing the library’s services.

The app is for iPhones and Android phones and can be downloaded by searching for SHARE Mobile Library in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

“The app has been customized to have all of the Edwardsville Public Library services and resources. Patrons that want to log in with their library bar code or PIN number can easily check their accounts and renew things they have checked out, ”said Jacob Del Rio, head librarian of adult services for Edwardsville Public Library.

“They can also use any of our e-resources and send wireless print jobs to our printer from their phone. They can scan bar codes from a bookstore or retail outlet and find that book in our library catalog. ”

The app also offers a way to manage multiple accounts and search and place holds on books and DVDs in the library’s catalog.

“The linked accounts are really good for parents because you can have your own account, but you can also put in the bar codes for each of your children or other household members,” Del Rio said. “You can also check out items from the library instead of presenting your card by using the bar code from the app.”

The app also has a feature where patrons can reserve one of the library’s new quiet study rooms.

“As part of our renovation, we added four quiet rooms along the north wall in the adult library,” Del Rio said. “They have been very popular, and we offer walk-ins, but it’s always good to place reservations so you’re sure you can use one of those rooms while you’re here.

“Two of the rooms have four seats and two of them have two seats, so you can have your own independent study time or do group work.”

The app can also be used to access the library’s events calendar and browse its digital shelves to read and stream content.

“The calendar of events includes all of our adult programs, kids’ storytimes and youth programs,” Del Rio said. “Anything that would require registration, or anything fun, educational or recreational, is on our calendar and will be listed on the app under library events.”

The e-books and e-materials link on the app will lead to all of the library’s e-resources.

“People still might not know that we have three separate services – Libby, Cloud Library and Hoopla – to borrow both e-books and audiobooks for digital devices,” Del Rio said. “There are links for them on the app as well as well for Kanopy, which has digital films and documentaries, and Tumblebooks, which is for children’s books online.”

For more information about the app, call Edwardsville Public Library at 618-692-7556.
