BookMyne October 12, 2011

Access books from your school, or public, library on the go. Easily place a hold and review your library account information so your next visit to the library is a cinch.

If your library has set up a BookMyne directory listing you can search your library easily with the BookMyne app for iPad. Currently Wooster City schools, Dalton Local Schools, the CLEVNET library, Orrville Public Library and Wayne County Library have BookMyne directories. If your school district isn’t listed, you may take advantage of BookMyne through one of the public libraries listed.
When you open BookMyne, your first task is to connect to your library. You can search by Name or address as well as through the GPS locator that will return libraries that are 10-300 miles from your current location. You pick the distance. Next, you can start searching the shelves. Type in a keyword, title or author or pick a book from one of the three ‘Suggested’ lists. Lists are categorized by Awards, what’s Popular and Social (using goodreads).  Once you find a book you can review it’s details as well as it’s availability. Public Libraries that are part of the CLEVENET system can request transfers from other libraries in the network and you can pick it up at your favorite location. 

 

 

Keep tabs on your library account information through the BookMyne app. Know what you have checked out, what is due and if you have any fines at a glance.

You can find more than physical paper books with BookMyne. E-Books are available and can be downloaded through the CLEVNET site which will launch within the BookMyne Browser window. You will need to log-in to the e-Media section of the CLEVNET website using your local public library card number. Once you are in you can download e-Books and Audiobooks directly to your iOS device.

Weather you use BookMyne to search your local library shelves while you’re on the go, or to download electronic books directly to your device now is the season to curl up with a good book and you can use BookMyne to help find that book.
