myLIBRO App Launches

PLJCS has launched myLIBRO, a brand new smartphone app and online service for patrons. Users will be able to access the Library’s online catalog and reserve books for curbside pickup, all through their smartphone!

Curbside Pickup, one of myLIBRO’s features, lets patrons search the library’s catalog, reserve books and other items, and then schedule a convenient time for pickup. Patrons can download the app via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store or use the service here.

“Although the pandemic has limited the use of our building, our current curbside service continues to grow,” said Katie Guthrie, Interim Director of PLJCS.  “The myLIBRO app is a quick and easy way for patrons to access this and other services, with just a few steps on their smartphone!”

Once patrons place a reservation and select a pickup time, their items will be brought right to their vehicle in a designated Curbside Pickup space.

The library has created dedicated phone numbers for certain services:

Curbside Pickup: 984-985-CURB

Laptop Checkout Info: 984-985-COMP

Everything Else: 984-985-BOOK

*All these numbers are local to the Smithfield exchange.
