Along with a new website, HCPL has also released a new mobile app that will help patrons to take care of their library business, browse our catalog, find library events and their nearest library location and hours. All these are fantastic features that will help all library users take advantage of all the library's services.
A littler known feature of the new HCPL app, maybe one of the best features! The new app has a handy Barcode ISBN Number scanner.
Imagine being at a gift store or a book store or even an airport, browsing and finding a surprising amount of new books you'd like to read. You could purchase them....OR being a library user you'd rather borrow them. With the ISBN Barcode Scanner, you could scan the books within this app and immediately put a hold for them at your neighborhood library, or if we don't have the item in our catalog, you could request the library purchase it!
The feature is is found on the fourth menu slide in the main section of the App, just above the library card sign up form.
This new app is available on both Google Play and in the Apple App Store and you learn more about the app here.
