Need to check out a library book? There's an app for that.
"LS2 Mobile is the online cataloging program that we use with the public side of our website," Land O' Lakes Library teen services manager Paul Stonebridge said.
The app gives similar access to the library catalog and search features. It also allows placement of holds and other services, Stonebridge said.
The library also offers another app, Overdrive Media Console, that allows users to access its large collection of e-books and digital audio books in a variety of formats, Stonebridge said.
"We have titles compatible with Apple devices, Android, Windows Media Player, Adobe E-Pub Reader, and more," Stonebridge said. "The books can be checked out just like a library book, with the file expiring after a fixed time, usually one or two weeks."
Borrowed titles can be downloaded direclty to a mobile device or to a computer's hard drive, then transferred to multiple devices, Stonebridge said.
More information and free downloads are available on the Overdrive Media Console website.
