Borrow Books from Libraries using your phone!
Donegal Library Service is delighted to launch their new Library app. The app is free and can be found on both iTunes and Google Play by searching for Donegal Library Service. The App is user friendly and allows you to enjoy content quickly and easily, locate the opening hours for your nearest Library and check the Whats On calendar for events.
In addition you can use the self check in and self check out feature in Central Library Letterkenny, Buncrana Library, Twin Towns Library, Bundoran Library and Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair. The book will automatically be issued to your library account. You can also scan the barcode of any book in a bookshop and place a request in your local Library if it is available.
The app screen can prioritise the services that are most important to you, including access to the most up to date information on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Additional features include adding linked accounts to share Library information with family, friends or community members.
For easy management you can keep track of the whole families library cards and loans in one place on your chosen device. You can also change the language and access existing apps for eBooks via BorrowBox, eNewspapers via Press Reader or eMagazines via Libby.
It’s free, simple to use and a useful feature for book lovers of all ages. This app was funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development as part of The Healthy Ireland at your Library programme. Healthy Ireland at your Library is delivered through a national framework managed by Libraries Development, Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) and local authorities and supported by the Department of Rural and Community Development (DRCD) and the Department of Health. The framework implements and maintains standardised services and supportive environments to individuals and communities to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Ireland at all life stages.
If anyone requires assistance with the app please contact your local library where staff will be happy to help. Library opening times are available here.
