Want to renew a book or place one on hold? There’s an app for that. Library hours or locations? There’s an app for that. Download an ebook? Find information fast? There’s an app for that, too.
The Tom Green County Library has launched a mobile app to put the library at your fingertips. From any mobile device connected to the internet you can instantly tap into library resources, anytime, anywhere. You can search the library catalog, check your account, ask a question, find events and more.

To access the library’s mobile app, search Tom Green County Library in your device’s market and download the free app.

“Everyone lives on their mobile phones these days, so it’s important for the library to be easily accessible whenever and wherever people need access to our staff and rich resources,” says Larry Justiss, Library Director.   “Our mobile app puts library information just one click away with more convenient access than going through a browser. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this new way to use the library by downloading our app.”

Searching the catalog with the mobile app is especially easy. Just type the first few letters of two or three words and search results will begin to appear.  For example, if you’re looking up Mark Twain in the catalog, just type “ma twa.” Once you find the title you’re looking for, you can place it on hold right from your phone.

Another feature, BookLook Mobile, lets you scan an ISBN barcode of a book from anywhere you are to see if the library owns that title.  If the library does - place a hold on it right from your phone or other device.

The library’s mobile app was developed by Boopsie Inc.  More than 250 libraries and universities use Boopsie to increase campus and community visibility. Boopsie solves the problem of unwieldy website viewing on a small screen.
