What's that you say, Louisville's Free Public Library has an app? Yes, they sure do and it's not just a glorified mobile version of their website either - there are some very cool features and it's one hundred percent free.
“The Library App is not some watered-down version of the library’s web site,” said Library Director Craig Buthod.  “It’s a fully functioning mobile tool for access to the library, its collections and its services.  I think people are going to love the convenience of it and the ease of using it.”
 
With the LFPL mobile app, users can browse the library collection, see lists of new books recently added to the library catalog, and manage their account to reserve or renew items.  Users can check for upcoming library programs and events, and get directions to any one of Louisville’s 18 library locations.  Patrons can even follow the Library on Facebook and Twitter, and ask staff questions – all at the touch of a button.
 
To download just go to your mobile phone's Web browser and type in www.lfpl.boopsie.com to install.
