Mobile App

Spydus Mobile is a free app for both Apple & Android which lets you access library services and manage your membership, any time.

Use the app to search for books, reserve items, download ebooks and eaudio books, keep track of your library account and manage the items you’ve got out on loan.   You can also scan barcodes on books, CDs, DVDs or other items while you’re out and about, and then search for available copies at your local library – even if you’re not a member yet.
