Toolkit Tuesday - Mobile App

With Toolkit Tuesday, we share Library tools you might not know about! This week's tool: Our Mobile App.

Johnson County Library’s Mobile App makes it easy to use the catalog to find and discover titles, manage your account and get the location and title availability information you need. It's super-handy, but there are pros and the cons to using the Mobile App as opposed to visiting our website,

The cons are few, but you will not be able to access website-exclusive content.  Our front page featured stories and all past features are not available on the app. You will also miss out on our Explore, eLibrary, Research, more detailed location pages, and sections for birth to six, kids and teens. 

That said, if you simply would like to:

  • Search the collection
  • Get details on any title
  • Check a title's availability – even map the locations where it is currently available
  • Place holds
  • Renew titles
  • See upcoming due dates
  • Add titles to your For Later list
  • Browse bestsellers, new titles and recent reviews
  • Check your neighborhood library hours and get directions to the nearest location

then, consider the Mobile App!
