Library users across Herts can now use an online app to keep up to date which what’s on offer at their local book base through their smartphones.

You can get information about forthcoming events, reserve books, search the catalogue and also renew books online using the new resource, as well as check opening hours.

As an added extra, you can scan the barcode of any book to see if it’s available in any county library and how to reserve it.

Councillor Teresa Heritage, County Hall’s lead member for libraries, said: “The app is brilliant – it gives everyone the opportunity to access reading, knowledge and information for free on a smartphone or tablet computer, while at home or on the go.

“This app is part of our Inspiring Libraries strategy, and is just one of the ways that the county’s service is using the latest digital technology to improve the services available for our residents and support digital inclusion.”

The app is available for both Apple and Android devices and can be downloaded from the AppStore or Googleplay.
