The San Mateo County Library has announced the launch of its new mobile app, which allows users to perform many of the same tasks they do online.
The app, powered by Boopsie, is available to download at www.smcl.boopsie.com, or by visiting the app store on a smartphone or tablet.
With the SMCL app, customers can search the catalog, place holds, renew materials, and see a display of new books, movies and music.
They can also follow SMCL blogs, check out events and programs, locate SMCL branches, and connect with library staff.
The new app is also designed to simplify access to the Library’s collection of ebooks/eaudiobooks with easy download ability.
In addition, the app features BookLook, which can be used to scan a book’s ISBN code to find out if the item is owned by SMCL.
