Library users are now able to get access to many library services in the palm of their hands. The Nassau Public Libraries Mobile app is available for download free of charge.

Users of this new app have the ability to search for materials, view events and programs, and find additional information. After a user chooses a home library, the remaining menus will change based on that library’s offerings and will remain set to the home library for future use. Patrons can search for movies, books, and more. Audio and eBooks can be downloaded directly to a mobile device for instant access.

According to Garden City Public Library Director Lisa Paulo, “The Nassau Public Libraries Mobile app provides a user-friendly interface for patrons to take advantage of all that the Garden City Public Library offers through their personal smartphone or tablet. This new service will enhance the overall library experience for our patrons.”

Through the Museum Passes portal, patrons can visit the Library webpage to view a list of available museum passes. Another key component, the Research button, sends users to online resources and homework help. Patrons have the ability to view their checked-out items and holds. Users can choose to receive notifications about their account status.

Garden City library users are invited to explore this dynamic application and connect to the services, programs, and activities at their library. Visit the App Store or Google Play and search for “Nassau Public Libraries Mobile.”
