Well, I did download the mobile app for CCPL yesterday. I have tried it out checking the status of two holds I have on books I want to read. Pretty cool! Now I am anxious to get to a library branch to try it for checking out books.

Here are the instructions that CCPL mailed out to subscribers this morning:
