Hertfordshire County Council has launched a smartphone application for the county’s library services so that residents can keep up to date with local services.
The Hertfordshire Libraries app will allow residents to scan barcodes of any book, anywhere to check if the county libraries have a copy.
In addition, users can renew or reserve books, find their closest library with its opening hours and find out about upcoming library events.
The app has been launched as part of the council’s Inspiring Libraries project. Councillor Teresa Heritage, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Localism and Libraries, said: “Hertfordshire Libraries’ app is brilliant.
“It gives everyone the opportunity to access reading, knowledge and information for free on a smartphone or tablet, while at home or on the go.
“This app is just one of the ways our library service is using digital technology to improve the services available for our residents and support digital inclusion.”
The application is now available for residents through the App Store and Google Play.
