The leaves are falling, and the books are calling! Alongside the season of change, Nashville Public Library is transforming how patrons use their library account.
The library now offers an app to make access to books even easier. The SHARE Mobile App, created with the Solus library app platform, provides quick and easy access to your library account so that you can browse the SHARE database, search for digital content, renew books, manage family checkouts and so much more!
Our favorite part is placing hold requests. If you are out and about and see a book you would love to read, simply scan the barcode to see if we have it in our collection. If we do, hit request! The app will automatically alert the library that you’d like the book and take the necessary steps to get you that title.
The new app is currently available in the App Store and Google Play Store, and a QR code is available to scan at the library. If you’d like more information, please call Nashville Public Library at 618-327-3827.
Other activities for November include craft kits. Due to the positive community response for October crafts, Nashville Public Library will continue to offer Take & Make Craft Kits for adults, teens, and children.
Craft kits for adults and teens will become available on November 1st and November 15th and may be picked up throughout the week or until supplies run out. Limit one kit per person.
Craft kids for kids will be offered every Tuesday in November, beginning on November 2nd. All craft kits are free and a library card is not required to participate.
“Crafts give kids a sense of achievement and allow them to take pride in their work which helps build confidence. Making art is a great way for kids to discover that it’s okay to make mistakes and that getting things ‘wrong’ can lead you to a whole new idea,” said librarian Kelsey Schaepperkoetter.
