  • Scan a barcode on the go and search in your library for it
  • Bookmark an item to access later
  • Find the nearest library using a geo-location application


Integration with LibraryThing for Libraries

If you’re a LibraryThing for Libraries customer already, you get the integrated tags, access to over 600,000 reviews, recommendations related to each item, and notes about other editions.

Library Anywhere features a fully customizable home page. So add a logo, or adding links to your blog or Facebook page is easy. With Library Anywhere you can create pages with your own content, such as book lists, announcements, and more. Plus links to your existing “ask a librarian” features, too, like instant messaging or texting.

Custom-branded app

In addition, Library Anywhere offers a branded app option that provides libraries with a complete “white label” solution. Get the power of Library Anywhere along with custom colors and branded apps, downloadable under your library’s name in the app stores.
