Access the Matawan Aberdeen Library with New Mobile App
Want to renew a book or place one on hold? There’s an app for that. Library hours or locations? There’s an app for that. Download an ebook? Find information fast? There’s an app for that, too.
The members of the Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium (LMxAC), which includes the Matawan Aberdeen Public Library, have recently launched a mobile app to put your library at your fingertips. From any mobile phone or device you can instantly tap into library resources, anytime, anywhere. You can search the library catalog, check your account, ask a question, find events and more.
To access the library’s mobile app, search LMxPRESS in your phone’s market and download the app or point your mobile browser to lmxac.boopsie.com.
“LMxPRESS was designed to meet the needs of our library patrons on the go”, said Joseph Da Rold, Director of the Plainfield Public Library and Chair of the LMxAC Board of Directors.
The app offers additional features, including integration with eLibraryNJ.com for access to eBooks and eAudiobooks as well as BookLook Mobile that lets you scan an ISBN barcode to see if a local library owns the title. “This is an amazing feature,” says LMxAC Executive Director Eileen M. Palmer. “If you’re at a bookstore you can just scan the ISBN, see if one of our members owns it and—if we do—place a hold on it right from your phone or tablet.”
LMxAC members are the libraries in Carteret, Dunellen, Edison, Jamesburg, Kenilworth, Long Branch, Matawan-Aberdeen, Metuchen, Middlesex, Middlesex County College, Milltown, Monroe, New Brunswick, North Brunswick, Old Bridge, Perth Amboy, Piscataway, Plainfield, Plainsboro, Red Bank, Roselle, Roselle Park, Sayreville, South Brunswick, South River and Spotswood.
Partial funding for LMxPRESS was provided by LibraryLinkNJ, The New Jersey Library Cooperative whose services are funded by the New Jersey State Library, which is responsible for the coordination, promotion , and funding of the New Jersey Library Network.
