Cedar Knolls, NJ – Morris Automated Information Network (MAIN) Libraries, a northern New Jersey shared services consortium of public libraries, today announced the launch of the MAIN Mobile Library App to its network of 38 libraries across Morris, Somerset and Warren Counties. Available to patrons beginning Nov. 24, 2020, the app offers an ‘anytime, anywhere, everywhere’ library experience from a user’s Apple iOS or Android device.
Delivering advanced functionality, the SOLUS Mobile Library App gives patrons access to the diverse shared collection of resources, plus a digital library card with linkable accounts, downloadable electronic resources, full-catalog searching with the ability to place holds, multi-language support, curbside pickup, self-check-out and more.
“In the age of COVID and social distancing, remote access has become more important than ever,” said Phillip Berg, Executive Director, MAIN Libraries. “We are excited to deliver the Solus Library App to the MAIN libraries and its patrons, offering convenient remote access to the network’s vast pool of resources from anywhere at any time.”
Patrons can download the app from the Apple and Google Play App stores by searching “MAIN Libraries”, or by visiting this link. Once downloaded, the app will guide users through a one-time login, then take them directly to their local library environment from that point on.
