Great library, Good app, but...
I love Gail Borden Library. It is the crown jewel of Elgin, IL. If you have been to the main library, you know what I am talking about.
The app is clean and simple. It saves your password so your don’t have to login each time. You can use the app as your library card (the bar code displays on your screen, allowing you to use it in the library to check out books). You can search the catalog, check out items for pickup, place a hold on items, and renew items as long as someone else has not placed a hold on that item.
The one thing it does not do is allow you to pay your fines via the app. I wanted to renew items that I’ve checked out, but because I owe $10, I cannot. I have to go to the website to pay my fine. Please add this feature.
Hangs & Crashes
Downloaded the app and tried to load into my account... twice. Both times it got hung up and eventually crashed. Didn't feel like seeing if the third time was a charm.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
