Things You Never Knew About Your Library


Are you using the Library app? Discover BCPL Mobile

Make your smartphone even smarter with Boone County Public Library’s app!
Available for iOS and Android, the Library’s app has a wide range of features and functions that will make your library experience a whole lot simpler. You can easily browse our collection and place a hold for later pickup. You can review checked-out and overdue items and then renew them – all from your phone!

Here are some more awesome things you can do with the
BCPL app:

  • You can use the app’s digital library card to check out books at a self-check machine. Or, you can use the app’s new Self Checkout feature to check out books as you take them off the shelf without having to stop by a self check machine or service desk. (Note: For this utility to work, you need to give the app access to your camera, or you can type the item’s barcode manually.)
  • Easily find out what’s happening at the Library each day.
  • Search the Library’s catalog for that book you just heard about.
  • Manage family accounts without logging in and out — a great feature for families!
  • Check your account for any fines or fees you may have accrued.

Visit the Apple App store, Amazon App store or Google Play and download it today!


  1. I chose 2 books I liked. When will I be able to pick them up? Do I need to scan my library card over the internet? How do I go about this? I have never done anything like this before.

      Hi Bonita – After you choose your items, place them on hold and select a branch. You will be notified when the books are ready to be picked up at the branch you selected. Just pull up and call the number on the sign. We will check them out for you and bring them to your trunk.
