Cuyahoga County Library System Goes Mobile

Here is a great local development for those of us who use the Cuyahoga County Library System and smart phones--described in a news release from CCPL: 

"During the week of April 11th we will be launching CCPL Mobile, an exciting new mobile app that will enhance our customers’ user experience and take our efforts to be the most convenient public library in the nation to the next level. With CCPL Mobile our customers will have access to the unprecedented convenience of checking out items using their smart phones.

"The CCPL Mobile app will be available to CCPL cardholders to download for free from the app stores of all smart phone and tablet platforms, including Android, BlackBerry, J2ME, Palm OS, Symbian S60, Windows Mobile, iPhone and iPad.

"With CCPL Mobile you can:

  • Check out materials.
  • Search for items in our catalog quickly and with minimal keystrokes.
  • Read item reviews and summaries.
  • Access your cardholder account to renew and reserve items.
  • Use the GPS-aware locator to find Library branches and hours of operation.
  • Text questions to KnowItNow 24x7.
  • Connect with Cuyahoga County Public Library on Facebook and Twitter.
  • And more…"

I am looking forward to downloading the app and installing it on my Droid.
