Library App

App Status and Help

The Mount Laurel Library app is not available.

We have learned that we will be without a Mount Laurel Library app until the early months of the new year.

We understand and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. A message from the company that provides our app is found in a tab above.

We recommend that people delete the current Mount Laurel Library app from their devices as the information it shares is no longer accurate. 

Please note that it is the Mount Laurel Library app that is affected and not the apps for services such as Libby (Overdrive) and Hoopla.

What is happening with the library's app?

The app's ability to connect to our main catalog servers is broken. This means that some features may still appear to work, when in fact they are showing old, outdated information. For example you may see books that you have returned showing up as checked out, or holds showing as 'ready for pickup' when you've checked them out already.

Can I still use the library app on my mobile device?

Only to access your library barcode.

The app will not search the catalog for books, or show you your checkouts and holds. It may show you hours and locations but since the app cannot connect to our servers, those hours may be wrong. It will still store your library barcode.

 

Is there another app I can use instead? What are my options?

Not at this time but you CAN still search the library and access your account on your device.

The way to do this is to put a shortcut to the mobile version of the Library catalog website on to your device. We have included steps, in the tabs above, showing how to do this on your device.

 

Go to our catalog:

https://mount2.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/mll/

 

Add a shortcut to the mobile version of the Library catalog site to the Home screen on your device. Doing this will give you the ability to search the Library's catalog, access your account, and place holds on items.

A statement from SirsiDynix regarding your library’s mobile app:
SirsiDynix is the owner of your library’s mobile application. However, another vendor controls the access to the app. Unfortunately, they have unexpectedly disabled the app, rendering it inoperable.

As an immediate solution, we are working with your library to enable mobile searching of the catalog via the library’s website. This allows many of the core search features of the mobile app to be available on your mobile devices. You can use the URL below to access this capability:

https://mount.ent.sirsi.net

We have also been aggressively developing an entirely new, next-generation mobile app for your library. While it is not yet available for general use, we anticipate it will be ready in the next few months. This app will deliver the functionality you enjoyed in the original app, along with many new features.

We regret any inconvenience this has caused you. Please know that your library had absolutely no way of anticipating this situation, and we hope you’ll be understanding as we work through this difficult, interim period.

Bill Davison, Chief Executive Officer
SirsiDynix
