New Mobile App Gives Users Instant Access To Library On South Coast

Oct 9, 2017

There’s a new way to get instant access to a library on the South Coast. 

The Ventura County Library has launched the MyVCLib mobile app. This free app delivers the library catalog along with account services such as the catalog search, holds and renewals. Plus, downloadable book and online resource apps are integrated for access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, language learning, movies and music.

Web Librarian Barbara Eales says there’s another feature called BookLook.

“Say you’re at the book store, you find a title you’re interested in. You can scan the ISBN using the app, and it will tell you if Ventura County Library owns the item. And if we do, you can tap a couple of times to place it on request to be delivered to the branch closest to you for pickup,” she said.

You can find the app in the Google Play and iTunes app stores.
