Can’t come to the library?
That’s okay, we have a new way to have the library right at your fingertips!
It’s called MVLC Mobile. (You can get it either on Google Play or the Apple App Store)
It will let you search our catalog (you can even scan an ISBN at the store and search for the book that way). You can see what our upcoming events are. What our Hours are. Or if you’re out and about, find where the closest library is and if they’re open.
If you’re a patron here at the Rockport Public Library or one of the other MVLC libraries you can also sign into the App with your library card number and pin/password. Then you’ll be able to check your library account and renew books if needed. As well as put all those books you looked up at the bookstore (and didn’t buy, don’t worry, I won’t tell) on hold.
In addition, you can link all your family members’ accounts. All managed from just one app! And, if you tap on the little card that says ‘My Barcode’, well, you don’t have to worry about forgetting your card at home anymore! Just, don’t forget your card and phone.
As the pictures show, you can connect to our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. And follow us if you’d like, there’s lots of good stuff on all three! Just tap on Social in the menu.
You can read and listen to (or place on hold) Overdrive books, right from the app. (For eBooks I recommend choosing the HTML option unless you have Adobe Digital Editions or the Kindle app on your phone/tablet). Or log into some of our Online Resources like Flipster & Freegal.
Honestly, this App really has everything but the Librarians.
But, have no fear, if you need a librarian to get this set up, to log in, or figure out how to use any part of it, we’re still here! Come on in and see us in person, give us a call at 978-546-6934, or Contact Us through our website if you need a hand.
