Penrith City Library has launched the new Library app, available for download on all iOS and Android devices.
The app provides members with easy access to the library catalogue, electronic library, events, online study support, Library news and more.
Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said the app was a great tool for the Library and members, especially during COVID-19 where many of the Library’s face-to-face events, activities and classes have moved online with services operating in a limited capacity.
"The app is a great way for members to connect with the Library from the comfort of their own home to have access to the Library’s fantastic services,” Cr McKeown said.
“The Library staff have put a lot of work into the app to ensure that it provides members with everything they could want at the touch of a button.”
“The app provides members with the opportunity to book tickets for upcoming Library events, view the Library’s numerous resources, databases, and view the Penrith Local History blog that the Library’s Flashback Friday social posts come from.
“With the functionality to link family member accounts under the one app and providing students study assistance with an online study tutor, the app is incredibly easy to use. I’d highly recommend members download the app,” she continued.
The app was developed in collaboration with SOLUS and is available for free on iOS and Android devices under the app name “Penrith City Library”. For more information, visit “Library Branches” at penrith.city/library
