Three Libraries Launch Innovative Mobile Patron App

EMERYVILLE, Calif. May 13, 2021 – Innovative, a ProQuest company and leading global provider of library software, is pleased to celebrate three libraries that have launched the Innovative Mobile patron app: Danbury Public Library in Connecticut, Nevada County Community Library in California, and Washington-Centerville Public Library in Ohio.

Innovative Mobile is a full-featured library patron app with support for full search, account management, and consortia plus additional features for implementing social-distancing processes such as electronic checkouts, library self-checkout via barcode and RFID, and curbside pickup.

“The app has everything we have been looking for: smooth integration with our catalog, a strong focus on account management, linked barcode storage for families, website content that opens within the app, translation capabilities, and a clean interface that we can customize to match our library’s branding. The curbside pickup function, ISBN search, and book cover slider are icing on the cake,” said Cecelia Lefurgy, UX & Access Services Librarian at Danbury Public Library.

With 55% of the global market now preferring mobile over desktop or tablet, Innovative Mobile meets a clear user preference. It recognizes the depth of diversity that exists in library communities by offering 20 languages from which to choose, supporting library efforts toward inclusivity across their patrons.

Innovative Mobile is available for Sierra and Polaris libraries, on Android and Apple iOS, and can accommodate consortia.
