While the Library's web site and catalog can be accessed from any Internet-enabled phone, smartphone and tablet users can go to the next level with BookMyne, the Library's app for iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android devices.* With BookMyne you can:
Access My Account functions, including:
See a list of the items you currently have checked out, with due dates, and current charges if overdue.
Renew selected or all items currently checked out.
View your pending and available holds; cancel or suspend holds (useful if you're going on vacation).
Scan the barcode of a book or video at a store and instantly see if the Library owns the item.
Search the Library's catalog, see what's currently available, place holds.
View lists of best-sellers and award-winning books, and see which ones are available in the Library
To download BookMyne to your smartphone or tablet, search for "bookmyne" in the App Store or Google Play, or follow the "iOS" or "Android" links above. Once the app is on your device, touch Find your library at the top of the screen. If Morton Grove Public Library does not appear in the list of libraries, touch the magnifying glass icon at the top of the screen and search for "morton grove."
* BookMyne is a product of SirsiDynix, the Library's automation system vendor. It is currently available for iOS and Android devices. All platforms can access the mobile version of the library's catalog, with many of the same features, at mgpl.sirsi.net . Only libraries using the SirsiDynix system, and configured for BookMyne access, will appear in BookMyne. While you can search the catalogs of any of these libraries, your barcode number can only be used to access additional features at your home LIbrary.
