Library catalog available on the go

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

BERRYVILLE -- Carroll and Madison Public Libraries are now giving patrons the option to browse their catalog via phone and tablet.

The catalog has been available on the library's websites since 2009, but browsing on anything but a computer has been cumbersome until now. The mobile version of the catalog is simple, intuitive and easy to use.

To place holds on books using the catalog from home, you must first visit or call your library and be given a PIN number. While you are at it, give the library your email address and sign up for email notifications to be notified when holds arrive at your library or your items are almost overdue.

When you are ready to browse the mobile catalog from your phone or tablet, enter into your mobile browser address bar. Here you can sign in under "My Account" to renew items you have checked out, select "Search the Catalog" to place a hold on a good book, or look up your library's hours of operation and contact information.

To be assigned a PIN number please visit or call your library. Berryville Public Library's phone number is 870-423-2323; Eureka Springs Carnegie Public Library, 479-253-8754; and Green Forest Public Library, 870-438-6700.
