BookMyne app is back in App Stores!
BookMyne is a mobile app for accessing the library catalog- both physical and digital items (OverDrive and eBooksMN) are included.
Patrons download their app, select their library and log in with their library card number and pin number.
Once logged in, they can go to "My Account" to manage all their requests and checked out digital and physical items. They can also see any fines that they have, but they do not see any notes or "message to patron" blocks.
Always verify the library shown as the pickup location. BookMyne is a very user friendly way for patrons to access the catalog and manage their account on their devices.
