THE CITY LIBRARY APP
Perform mobile catalog searches for books, DVDs, audiobooks, and CDs.
Smart Prefix™ search, a search designed specifically for mobile devices, makes it faster to search and find what you're looking for. Type the first couple of letters of words, and the search instantly pulls the most relevant results. Type 'row go' for J.K. Rowlings' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. For Gossip Girl titles, type 'gos gi.' To find a specific Gossip Girl title like The Complete Second Season, you only have to type 'gos gi co se.'
Advanced Search is also available, allowing for a more robust search process familiar to regular City Library patrons.
Manage your library card account: place holds, renew items, and view your fines. You can also see how many and which titles you currently have checked out; overdue items are clearly highlighted in red, and each item's due date is listed beneath its title.
