We don’t have to tell you how crazy this pandemic year has been. Our priority is to keep all staff and patrons safe while providing excellent library services within our community during these trying times. One way for us to keep books and media in the palms of your hands is through Highland Public Library’s App for iPhone and Android.
We will keep you on the go with five handy functions you won’t be able to live without once you begin using them.
1. Will Always Have Access to Your Library Card
The Highland Public Library App stores a digital copy of your library card. If you have your phone with you regularly—and who doesn’t, you have your library card with you. This comes in handy when you use digital media apps that require you to sign in with your library card or you need to check out library items.
2. Manage Your Library Account Anytime, Anywhere
Always know the status of your library account. You can track your holds, checkouts and due dates.
3. Search the Catalog
Library card holders can search the library system’s collection of books, movies, TV, audio books, magazines and more. One cool feature of the library app is the barcode scanner. If you are browsing the local bookshop, you can quickly scan a barcode to see if the book is available in the collection. Why not put that money back in your pocket? Just another benefit of being a library card holder.
4. Use the Download Library
Access the digital download web pages to browse or borrow digital and audio books all from one location. Links include OverDrive, Hoopla, Mango Languages, Universal Class and Kanopy. In most cases you can read, watch and download directly from your digital device.
5. Contact Us
Contact us directly from the library app. You can place a call or email us, and check the most recent hours to avoid wasted trips.
