Library Introduces a Mobile App for Catalogue Searching and

 Account Management on Smartphones

Now Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) customers with web-enabled smartphones or tablets will be able to manage their library accounts anytime, anywhere using the ORL’s new mobile app. Called “ORL Mobile”, the app is being launched today and also includes branch information, catalogue searching, links to social media, and more.

“We’re very excited to enter the mobile world,” says Chantelle McGee, the ORL’s new Virtual Branch Head. “ORL Mobile has some very innovative features that will make using the library even more convenient and enjoyable for our tech-inclined members”.

For example, the app includes a feature called “BookLook” which on most devices can scan the ISBN code of any book and link to the ORL catalogue to show available copies. Then it is easy to place a hold request. Customers can also browse available eBooks and eAudiobooks titles in either of the ORL’s two digital book collections through the app and download them to their device.

To access this free app, visit on your mobile device. You can also find the app at the iTunes app store or Google Play store by searching “Okanagan Regional Library”.
