Why Doesn't The Chicago Public Library Have an App
I was surprised over the weekend when I discovered that the Chicago Public Library does not have an app available. Additionally, their website is not user friendly when you pull it up on your mobile phone or tablet. (It's just a miniaturize version of the main site, which has many tabs and pages posted on the front page. I kept hitting the wrong button.) An app could solve all of these issues, and make it much easier to check the availability of a book and placing it on hold.
I'm very proud of the Chicago Public Library and how it has been forward thinking with integrating technology into the library. But no app... come on!
