What is the Library app?

The Library app brings together all the municipal library's materials, events and news in one easy-to-use solution.

The user can be inspired to find new materials via the front shelves, search across all material types, make reservations, make and renew loans, receive automatic notifications, and be informed about library news and events via the app.
