  1. I have downloaded the app. I can enter my library, but as soon as I’ve entered my card number I can bumped out and the app closes. I’ve powered off my iPhone to reboot but it happened again. I’ve even re installed the app…help!!

    • Hi! Unfortunately, I don’t have a way to check on what’s happening – I just don’t have enough information.

      Could you write to :, or call 507-6300? Be sure to have your library card number handy!
