One of the first fully transactional public library smartphone apps in the UK, the Edinburgh Library app:
- Out shopping and seen a book you want to read? Scan the barcode on the back cover to your phone and the libraries app will search the catalogue to see if the library has a copy you can reserve.
- Couldn’t get to the library to renew your books and DVDs ? Use the Edinburgh Libraries app to log in to your account and do it there and then wherever you are.
- Keep forgetting your library membership card ? Scan it in to you phone and you won’t need to worry in future. The scan will work on self service and at traditional library counters.
Edinburgh Libraries updated smart phone app is now available and if you already have the previous version you can quickly update it on your phone.
If you are not a member you can still use the app to search the library catalogue, find the nearest Edinburgh library to where you are, when it’s open and how to get there, or just follow the Literary Map of Edinburgh.
