Albany Public Library Mobile App

Borrow items using your mobile phone anywhere in the library! Simply scan the item barcode (on the front cover) using your mobile phone to borrow them anywhere in the library. No more carrying them around or waiting in the queue. The RFID system will know the items are issued so you will not trigger the alarm as you leave.  You can also manage your current loans and reserves.
