Greenwich Library Launches Updated Catalog App

Greenwich Library recently launched an updated Library Catalog app available for Apple and Android devices. Simply search “Greenwich Library” in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to get started. Patrons who already have the Library catalog app will be prompted to update it.

The catalog continues to be available online through any browser at greenwichlibrary.org or by going directly to greenwichlibrary.bibliocommons.com.

The updated app offers improved functionality including easy access to a patron’s Library bar code to easily scan checkouts when visiting the Libraries. On the app’s home screen, a dashboard shows patron borrowing, including items due soon, holds, and any fees. The New at the Library carousels helps patrons to discover their next read, listen, or watch by scrolling through the Library’s newest acquisitions in books, audiobooks, and movies. Shelves are prominently displayed so patrons can opt to manually track their current and past titles, as well as save titles they might be interested in reading later. Staff curated lists are another way to find something new.

“Since it launched in 2014, Greenwich Library’s BiblioCommons catalog has provided a seamless user experience. The updated catalog app will continue to deliver the joy of browsing and discovering new materials to the Library’s online experience,” said Barbara Ormerod-Glynn, Greenwich Library Director.

Reference staff are familiar with the app’s features and can provide assistance to individuals who need help navigating this service.
