FAQs

Do patrons have to get the app?

No, the browser version of the MORE online catalog is mobile-friendly and displays nicely on a small screen. The app is just another option for users to find library materials, place holds, and manage their accounts from their phones.

What are the advantages of the app?

  • Streamlined access to account info: unlike the browser-based version of the catalog, users remain logged in on the app even if they’ve been inactive for awhile
  • Quicker access: once downloaded, the app launches quickly without users having to launch their browser and navigate to the online catalog website, or even manually save a shortcut to the website
  • Automatic library card storage: the app automatically saves a digital version of the patron’s library card which can be scanned with most scanners at the library, including Envisionware self-checks
  • Library location info at a glance: see open hours, directions, and services offered at all MORE-member library locations, with priority for patrons’ “preferred” or most-visited locations

Do patrons have to create a new account to use the app?

No, patrons log into the app with their existing library barcode number (or username set up in the main catalog), along with their existing PIN (called “password” in the app)

Can patrons pay fines from the app?

Yes, though they’ll be directed to log into their account in the MORE Classic Catalog to do so, just as with the browser-based version of the catalog.

Is it free?

Yes, the app is free for patrons to install and use
