How can a library app benefit you and your patrons?

A fully functioning library app allows patrons to access a wide range of library services, on and off-site, helping to make the library relevant and easily accessible to a new, technologically focused audience.

Facilitate easy access to your library with appIT – the Library App from D-Tech, which enables patrons to access a range of library services, including the ability to borrow & renew books using only their smart device.

Would it be beneficial for your patrons to borrow items using only their mobile phone or smart device?

Utilizing either barcode or RFID technology, appIT delivers a raft of features, including checking items, checking account status, renewing items, checking library locations, and hours of operation. Additionally, the app can be used to engage and communicate with patrons through advertising space and patron messaging. You can even show patrons a simple survey, with results readily available via your secure online portal.

Did you know? App use is growing at 119% a year.

Connect and engage with your patrons and remove your library walls.
