Get widgets and apps
You can use mobile features and widgets (such as search boxes) for some of our online databases.
BookMyne (iOS, Android) is an app that allows users to easily find your nearest library location, search the library’s catalog, place holds, and renew currently checked out items. You'll need your library card number and PIN to access your personal account information and place holds using the BookMyne app.
You can send an audio track, album, or playlist from the streaming collections to your mobile device to listen to later. The item that you send stays on your device for 48 hours.
At this time, this functionality is supported on Android and iPhone (3G or better).
Also, there are free biweekly downloads on Music Online. For more information, visit the Music Online Help page.
Novelist Plus Mobile site
This isn't an app or a widget, but it is a mobile version of the Novelist database which supplies reading recommendations. For example, enter a book you've enjoyed and get recommendations of similar books. Scan this QR code and go to the URL, and set a bookmark. Then login with your library card. You can add the bookmark to your home screen if you wish.
You can get widgets for the Gale databases here and put them on your personalized web page, such as iGoogle. You'll need our library identification code, which is tel_p_knoxcpl.
You can also get iPhone and Android apps for the Gale databases.
Two free iPhone apps, pic2shop and Book Bazaar, work through our WorldCat subscription and are downloadable through Apple’s iTunes App Store. For Android, there's a BookMinder app.
