Library users now have the ability to carry the Watertown Free Public Library in their pocket with the Minuteman Library Network app, the library announced.
Users on the go can use the app to search the catalog and place holds, keep tabs on their library account, renew or freeze their items and manage holds. Users have access to a digital library card on their phone. The app provides access to thousands of eBooks, streaming movies, digital magazines, and premium subscription resources for lifelong learning.
The app is customized for each library in the Minuteman Network – it’s like having 43 different apps, each with its own unique resources, events and social media. Users can quickly find their library’s hours, directions or contact information for their local branch.
“We wanted to create a personalized experience for each of our library’s patrons in Minuteman. The libraries in our network have such unique resources, it is only fitting that their app matches their unique personalities,” said Inna Ivers, a representative from the Network.
The app is now available for download in both the Apple App Store and Google Play. To find the app, search for “Minuteman Library Network.”
