Buggy and non-functional

The app experiences frequent bugs and errors. It does not let me sign in half of the time because of an “Authentication Timeout.” It also does not let you make a library card account: Once you fill out all of the information and click submit, it pops up an error message.

Developer Response ,

Our apologies - it sounds like you tried logging in when our authentication server was down! It has been fixed, so please try again. If it still isn't letting you in, please email us at and we'll investigate.

Simple enough

This is a simple app for placing books on hold and renewing books currently checked out.
I tried to search for a book and it gave me books completely unrelated to the actual title I entered. Once I did find the book I had no idea which format it was available (book, large print or e-book.) It would be nice to know this information and to be able to search for books using title, author and/or format.

I was able to click on the "help" button and it provided the webpage layout which solved the issues I listed above; seems there should be an easier way. ?

Have you tried it since we enabled specific title & author searching - not just keyword searching?

A good app

A good app but could be better. Compared to other apps, in 2018, this one seems like it’s from when apps first came out. The discover process and home page could be better. When placing holds I was told you would be able to see how many were also holding it, after going back in and placing a hold this did not happen. I just think it could be a lot more user friendly, especially for people like me who don’t really have the time to go and browse through a library as often they want. Digital is my best friend because of my personal life and I am sure I am not alone in this.
