Okanagan Regional Library arrives in mobile world with new app

Okanagan residents can now access the library anywhere, anytime.

Okanagan Regional Library has introduced a mobile app for customers with web-enabled smartphones or tablets.

“We’re very excited to enter the mobile world,” said Chantelle McGee, head of ORL’s new virtual branch.

“ORL Mobile has some very innovative features that will make using the library even more convenient and enjoyable for our tech-inclined members.”

For example, the app includes a feature called BookLook, which on most devices can scan the ISBN code of any book and link to the ORL catalogue to show available copies.

Then it is easy to place a hold request. Customers can also browse available eBooks and eAudiobooks titles in either of the ORL’s two digital book collections through the app and download them to their device.

To access the free app, visit orl.boopsie.com on your mobile device.

You can also find the app at the iTunes app store or Google Play store by searching Okanagan Regional Library.
