Reserving library books? There’s an app for that!

Posted on May 18th, 2010 by Sara Willy

The next time you’re about to head to the Queen Anne library, you can make sure the books you want are held for you beforehand with a new free mobile app that allows you to reserve books on the go. The Seattle Public Library app features the system’s catalog and other online services. The app, called SPL Mobile, is powered by Boopsie.

Enhanced features of the mobile app include smart prefix searching to obtain search results faster with just the first few letters of a word or phrase. For example, entering “ha pot g” into the search box finds “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”  You can find information on downloading the app here.
